Your Head Will Explode...
Before reading the following, please take the precaution of wrapping your head with duct tape to help prevent it from exploding upon learning about this miraculous discovery. According to Pablo Turrero of the University of Oviedo in Spain, cavemen irreparably impacted Atlantic salmon and brown trout to the effectively downsize these fish by 80 percent. Remains of prehistoric fish dinners from caves suggest that over the past 20,000 years Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) and brown trout (Salmo trutta) have shrunk from an average of up to 5 pounds to about a pound. He says that it’s because of our ancient ancestors’ fishing skills that some rivers now have much smaller fish. The scientist suspects that the Stone Age fishers deliberately targeted larger specimens.
