Isn't this the fish that was "collected to death" by (a) researcher(s), I
seem to remember something like 300 specimans just to see what they ate? I
could be thinking of another fish, but am pretty sure this is the one. If it
is, then I think it should be noted that is was not someone wanting some for
an aquarium that knocked the population down, but unscrupulous research.
For any study, do several hundred animals really need to be killed to find
out what they eat?
