Fish memories (Surprisingly not entirely off topic!)

Short version of the story is as follows : Study finds fish preserve DNA 'memories' far better than humans - University of Otago researchers report that memory in the form of 'DNA methylation' is preserved between generations of fish, in contrast to humans where this is almost entirely erased.When I saw this I thought of Arcadia of My Youth when they examined the 'ancestral memories' of Harlock and Tochiro. It interested me so I thought I would pass it along.
