What's Next: Magnetized Salmon

Keith Barton of Singlebarbed turned up an interesting story in Wired magazine about how scientists are suggesting giant magnetic coils to program hatchery salmon so that they will swim to and repopulate abandoned headwaters. Barton’s commentary: “By then Walmart will have installed the gizmo in their parking lot to irradiate us continuously, sending us to whichever store has the most unsold inventory, or we’re wandering around aimlessly wondering why we want a Tofu-Watermelon milk shake in Modesto, when we live 300 miles away.”
