    Fish "SANG" during Hurricane Charley.


    http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/Dye...=238449&page=1



    "We were very surprised," says David Mann, a biological oceanographer at the University of South Florida's College of Marine Science.

    Mann and colleague James Locascio have 10 hydrophones anchored just off the bottom of the shallow waters of Charlotte Harbor, which is south of Tampa Bay. So little is known about fish behavior during spawning that the scientists didn't know really what to expect when they installed the system.

    What they got, they say, is songs. At least to a marine biologist the fish sound like they are singing while trying to get in the reproductive mood.

    To the rest of us, Mann says, the "chorus," as it is called, would sound more like "humming, or grunting."

    Sorry Linda, understand it's a touchy subject but you came out of it just fine. This is the Bizarro NEWS forum, it was bizarre news.

    actually i saw a great story today of someone who found a photo album encompassing 3 generations that had been lost during hurricane ivan, i really hope its owner is located! what a gift that would be! my family lost 2 homes in andrew and all family photos of a lifetime, there is no replacement for that. pictures of weddings and a deceased father, of children growing up. a loss beyond measure. i am praying the owner of lost album is found by a miracle!

    The fish: did they sound good or were they all washed up?

    DL: That's a good looking pair in your latest picture.
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
