Re: [APD] Breeding Fish in "Sterile" Environments

I often wonder if some store-bought fish seem so delicate because of the 
sterile breeding conditions. Just like studies have shown that children 
that grow up in relatively sterile environments have more allergies, 
asthma, and disfunctioning immune systems, I imagine the same is true 
with fish.

I'm sure the economics are on the side of sterile breeding tanks, but 
the economics only have to get the fish to survive until they get to the 
customers' home.
