Re: Fish that Glow in the Dark

Yeah, don't eat those glowing fish, leave them for me!

If you're paranoid, buy the inspector

Inspector

and scan everything you eat. But don't scan it on your granite countertop, because the natural radiation from the granite will overwhelm the radiation from the fish.

Count me in! I'm hoping my new third eye won't be colorblind.

On the other hand, what will three-eye cruisers use for dive masks?

I find this hard to believe. I seem to recall that agent orange (aka LNX, aka that horrible krap in the orange drums from Monsanto & Dow Chemical) would burn skin on contact. I can't imagine anyone being able to swallow a single gulp.

I was going to actually look up the findings that you originally reported because I do not trust the media machine in this country to actually report relevant information of interest to the general public, but you now seem rather far over the edge & my incentive to spend the time on the research has diminished.

That's a slick little unit! It seriously beats my estate/garage sale counter that originally came from a homeowner's under-the-house shelter dating to the cold war. It's the size of a large ammo box. For the fish to move the needle, it'd probably have to be a fatal dose.

Re: Fish that Glow in the Dark

I gave up worrying about cancer when my Dad died 9 years ago. He lived the healthiest lifestyle of anyone I know, and it still wasn't enough to overcome his genes. So why bother?

Re: Fish that Glow in the Dark

The problem is bio-magnification across the trophic levels. The tuna eat the smaller fish who eat the zooplankton who eat the phytoplankton...etc...

True, my wife got it in her mid 30s, never smoked or drank and ate very little red meat. She has survived but damn that sucks. But then again my friend died of lung cancer after being a lifeline smoker so.......

Last month I anchored by Cape Canaveral and the water glowed so much the fish left a wake. That was cool.

Not if the species is a bio luminance one.
