Parr’sfish showed panic reactions which in-creased the more they collided, whereasthe test saithe recovered very graduallyfrom handling and anesthesia while being repeatedly presented with theschool. Finally, none of our blind saitheshowed any reaction to the school withinthe time scale of Parr’s experiment.
