Researchers at the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts have taught fish to "catch themselves." The researchers trained the fish by feeding them in an enclosed area right after playing a certain tone. After two weeks, the fish associated the tone with food and would swim right into the enclosure when they heard the sound: "remote control fish."

Being able to call fish into a trap could "bolster depleted fish stocks and reduce the costs of fish farming."

That sounds great. We just hope they cite Ernie if this research gets published.
