WASHINGTON – Researchers believe they have solved the puzzle of three seemingly different fish, one all males, one all females and one all juveniles. They're the same fish, and undergo remarkable changes as they mature. "You can imagine it was a pretty exciting discovery," said G. David Johnson, an ichthyologist at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. "The pieces kept falling into place."


It's the same fish! The only reason they could figure it out now is that they had access to better testing such as DNA and obtained fresh samples to test.

Science is our current belief but unlike mathematics, it is not absolute. I find this stuff facinating.

It makes me optimistic that research into food allergies will find a cause and better treatment, if not a cure.
