Dude, Look At All The Pretty Colors....

If this gets out it could be the end of catch and release fishing as we know it. You can actually suffer from hallucinations similar to the effects of LSD, just by eating certain kinds of fish.

"Ichthyoallyeinotoxism, or hallucinogenic fish poisoning, is caused by eating the heads or body parts of certain species of herbivorous fish and has previously only been recorded from the Indo Pacific"

I can picture it now, stoned hippies crowding our rivers and streams, carrying huge stringers of fish.
