I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but a study came out of the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, discussing the different personality characteristics of brown trout. I'm sending it all my "almost vegan" and "nearly vegan" friends who eat fish!

Here's a summary from a news article:
"We know that it is hard to believe it, but scientists believe that fish are showing personality traits. No, they can’t talk or communicate yet, but researchers at the University of Gothenburg have found that brown trout have individual characters and show different personalities. Over the years, Bart Adriaenssens (Zoology-University of Gothenburg) has studied juvenile trout in the rivers and streams along the west coast of Sweden. He stated that “My results show that it are not just humans and other mammals that exhibit personality. Also brown trout differ among each other in their level of aggression and react differently to changes in their surroundings. The release of a novel object in the aquarium causes very different reactions. Some individuals will immediately explore this object, whereas others will rather hide in a corner and try to avoid every contact.”

Here's the abstract:
