Something fishy about this one... not really!

While crusing the web I found this blog entry about how the solar and lunar rhythms affect the fishing industry... very interesting. Here is a bit of it...

Much of the early research and understanding of solar and lunar influences was pioneered by John Alden Knight. In 1926 Knight began his studies of various influences that affect wildlife activity. This research resulted in his publication of tables that illustrated periods in each day of major activity and minor activity. To substantiate his research and theory, Knight analyzed data for over 200 record catches of fish. His analysis concluded that 90% of the catches were made while in the effect of the new moon and while in a "solunar period".

I hope you enjoy reading the rest of the entry!
