What is I was to tell you that fishing is getting easier because all the fish are taking happy pills? We’ll its true.
If you’ve noticed you’re getting a lot better at fishing, we’ve got some bad news for you. You’re not getting better at fishing . . . the fish are getting worse.
A new study out of Sweden found that fish are now CRAZIER than they used to be. They’re going off alone, making riskier decisions, and generally making themselves more prone to predators and fishermen. And that’s happening because of . . . ANTIDEPRESSANTS. Traces of anti-anxiety and anti-insomnia drugs are creeping into the water because sewage systems aren’t doing a good enough job filtering them out. And the researchers say it’s, quote, “turning fish into greedy, risk-taking loners.”
