(UP) — Tho blts of n flsii which catches its food with n natural rod and bait arc the subject of a study by Douglns P. Wilson, naturalist at the Marino Biological Association's Plymouth aquarium." It Is called the angler-fish and observation of Its strange charac- terlsifes— begun by Arbtotle —has always been regarded as difficult because the fish Is easily bruised daring capture and rarely survives In on aquarium for any length of time. Wilson was able lo study tho iiablts of five specimens, and in llio Journal of Iho association ho describes tho method by which llio fish capture their prey. Their "rod" is an extension of the dorsal spine, which sticks out In front of the fish's month. The ball Is a fly-like Ing ot skin." "An angler, when hungry," writes Wilson, "erects the lure 1m- mediately nny suitable fishes come anywhere near, and endeavors to attract one of them close enough to be caught. Tho hire Is quickly jerked to and fro and ns the ro<i Is almost invisible, the bait simulates some tiny creature darting about. An attracted fish rushes up In an endeavor to catch It; the bait is skillfully nicked out ot its way just in time and with a final cast is dnshed down in front of Ihc mouth. The jaws snap faster llian Ihe eye can follow." Wilson describes the trip action of the fish's jaws as "a blur of rapid movement which defies analysis by straight forward observation." So vicious was one of ths specimens In the Plymouth aquar-, lum that to give II food with the fingers dangerous.
