Three Second Goldfish Memory Theory: Debunked

Goldfish are known for their poor memories. However, this is a complete myth that! Despite its lack of scientific backing, this concept has spread widely and remained largely undisputed for many years. What if I told you that goldfish memory can actually last weeks, months, and even years! You'd be all like: bish whaaaaat. Well, it's true! These uniquely beautiful little fishies are easily recognizable by their distinct orange hues covering their little bodies and spreading as well to their extensive fins.

Live Science recently reached out to Culum Brown, an expert in fish cognition at Macquarie University in Australia, who told Live Science: 'We've known about the reasonably good memories of goldfish since the '50s and '60s. Despite what everybody thinks, they're actually really intelligent.' 'Brown has studied the intelligence of fish, including goldfish, for more than 25 years and thinks the misconception comes from a combination of ignorance about fish intelligence in general and guilt, because pet owners often keep them in small, boring tanks.'
