World's most intelligent fish

Comet, the goldfish may be the world’s most intelligent fish after its owner, Dean Pomerleau, trained it to perform a range of aquatic activities. Comet can play football, basketball and even limbo dance under a bar, fetch with a hoop, slalom around a series of poles and push a rugby ball over a set of posts. Dr Pomerleau from Los Angeles, used a training technique called positive reinforcement to train Comet to perform the tricks. This involves rewarding the fish with food when it successfully completes a task.
