A fish on the line

This has nothing to do with aliens, but it really struck me. There was an article in our local paper on Sunday, reprinted from Newsweek magazine about an alarming discovery that sentinel fish are mutating because of contaminated water. (At least the scientists are saying so.)

They are now able to measure trace amounts of substances due to improved technology. We filter out the contaminants but traces remain and they theorize that the problem is deforming the fish.

The species of fish is, I kid you not, the common white sucker!
