So that's where "the one that got away" go. Who knew?

“Based on the theory we were working with, you would expect that in a northern region with shorter growing seasons and cooler temperatures, there’s less energy” for the whole food chain, said University of Manitoba fish scientist Mike Rennie. That should translate into fewer fish in the North.

But it didn’t.

“The surprising finding was that fish generally seemed to be hitting above their weight in this northern region,” Rennie said.
