    The brown trout that are circulating around are not so good.

    1964 was right at the cusp. Two years later, not only would the definition, “a hallucinogenic drug derived from d-lysergic acid, originally found in the ergot fungus” been superflous, but the article itself could probably not have been published.

    My brother works/ed at a pond store called Scherer’s that is pretty famous for selling quality koi fish and plant’s in the New York area. Apparently in the 50′s and early 60′s this exact research was carried out there by scientists and you can still find said research published somewhere in a dark corner of the interweb. It’s a running joke at the store apparently, although i’ve never been able to find the abstract.

    Yes biologists could count the fish and I could go swimming. This seems like a good plan…
