Fishies in a Bowl

Caption: Juvenile Atlantic salmon raised in tanks with hiding places and floating artificial plants showed signs of improved brain function and could better navigate mazes than the salmon reared in standard hatchery tanks. The discovery may help fish hatcheries raise a smaller number of fish that can better survive in the wild.
