Something we found interesting!
Fish can smell Danger! Maybe we can too!
A study was done by the Biomedical Sciences Institutes in Singapore.
Fish know when another one in their school has been harmed. When a fish is injured in a school, others show signs of distress, fast “dart-like” movements, and may even breach the surface. Fish seem to release a substance that is found by smell and then triggers an alarm.
Scientist have now found that this trigger may be from broken fish scales/skin. When a piece of the fish is broken off, and dissolved in water, the fish seem to be able to smell the injury.
