 I  am  new  here.  I  came  accross  an  article  today  at  'Discovery'  which  I  wish  to  share  with  you  all:-
 Fish  Respond  to  Mozart
 
 
 Studies  on  the  growth  and  physiology  of  the  common  carp  suggest  that  music  can  also  be  directly  linked  to  animal  health.
 
 Sofronios  Papoutsoglou,  a  professor  in  the  Department  of  Applied  Hydrobiology  at  the  Agricultural  University  of  Athens,  and  his  team  reared  the  fish  in  a  recirculating  water  system  under  constant  darkness  or  normal  light  conditions.  The  researchers  then  transmitted  classical  music  underwater  to  some  of  the  carp.
 
 
 They  found  that  darkness  tended  to  stunt  the  fish’s  growth,  but  when  the  carp  were  exposed  to  30  minutes  or  more  of  Mozart’s  "Eine  Kleine  Nacht  Musik,"  even  the  light-limited  carp  grew  at  more  normal  rates.
 
 The  researchers  also  determined  that  classical  music  exposure  improved  liver  fatty  acid  composition  in  the  fish  and  appeared  to  reduce  brain  neurotransmitter  levels  associated  with  stressful  conditions.
 
 
 The  scientists,  who  will  publish  their  results  in  the  January  2007  issue  of  Aquacultural  Engineering,  suggest  music  in  future  could  be  used  to  improve  "fish  welfare"  under  intensive  fish  farming  practices.

 Thanks  for  the  information  essabee  and  welcome  Â Welcome  
 I  wonder  if  this  applies  only  to  classical  music.  I  usually  play  Heavy  metal  (when  my  family  is  out  of  the  house).  
 My  fish  probably  resent  me  for  it!  I'll  have  to  dust  off  my  classical  stuff  and  start  playing  it  more  often.

 interesting..  but  let  me  get  this  correct,  you  just  place  the  music  in  the  room  where  the  tank  is  and  expect  the  soundwaves  to  cross  the  air,  glass  and  get  into  the  water??

 Looks  like  mozart  is  the  way  to  go!  Forget  the  ferts,co2  and  lights....  just  play  mozart!!   Chuckle  
 
      On  a  serious  note  I  have  heard  on  more  than  once  that  mozart  helps  in  developing  concentration.  I  guess  something  to  do  with  the  sound  waves   his  music  creates  being  benificial  for  a  lot  of  "applications".
 
    Regards

 I  think  the  idea  of  playing  Mozart  to  cows  came  from  our  very  own  Lord  Krishna  !!  Clapping   Thumb Up

 I've  heard  that  breeders  in  Chennai  and  Bangalore  do  the  fertility  dance.  That's  how  these  guys  are  so  successful  in  breeding  fishes.  Chuckle

 "...  music  in  future  could  be  used  to  improve  "fish  welfare"  under  intensive  fish  farming  practices."
 
 I  think  slow....  so....
 Intensive  fish  farming  brings  to  my  mind  images  of  hundreds  of  fish  in  small  areas/  tanks/  ponds  being  raised  for  the  sole  purpose  of  being  eaten.   No  problems  there.  I  eat  fish  and  dont  feel  guilty  about  that.
 
 But  to  say  fish  welfare!!
 
 Basically  the  scientists  want  the  fish  to  gain  weight  fast.  Fast  growing  fish  allow  more  seeding-growing-fishing  cycles  per  year.  To  call  that  fish  welfare  is  W-I-E-R-D  (yeah  that's  the  slow  thought).  
 
 The  experiment  itself.  Well  I  hope  it  is  a  randomized  control  trial.  Anyway  I  find  it  perfectly  believable.  It  does  explain  why  I  am  so  fat.  You  see,  when  I  was  young  (and  growing  like  a  carp)  my  father  used  to  play  Mozart.  I  remember  Eine  Kleine  Nacht  Musik  and  also  the  Turkish  March.
 
 There  is  more  I  want  to  say...  but  I  gotta  rush.  Need  to  get  that  report  on  my  liver  fatty  acids.

 Hi  Deepesh
 Thats  the  mood.  Humming  is  good  for  digetion  and  assimilation.
 Results  growth---  mind  and  body
 The  article  left  out  how  the  music  was  communicated  to  the  fish,  I  would  like  to  find  out.
 Water  they  say  is  a  good  medium  for  sound.

 Hi  essabee
 
 Water  does  conduct  sound  faster  than  air.
 
 Music  underwater  sounds  different  to  human  ears.   I  think  thats  because  human  ears  were  not  made  for  music  underwater.  What  fish  percieve  is  an  open  question.  
 
 Sound  is  vibration  that  our  ears  hear,  vibration  is  sound  that  our  skin  feels.  Fish  definitely  feel  vibration  but  whether  they  hear  sound  is  difficult  to  say.
 
 There  are  some  underwater  sound  effects  avialable  for  free  on  the  net  for  common  music  software.  For  humans  that  is  .....  <laughing>
