Those of us who spend time communing with the ocean and its creatures know that fish are smarter than people think.
We have seen them gazing at us with curiosity, responding to our gestures –even to our intentions. We have seen their crafty ways to hide, hunt, and interact with their environment. There is no question that fish feel, and think. They just don’t seem to care much to show it.
