Hi guys and gals :P
Do you remember that episode in River Monsters where pacus were biting people in the Sepik River and Jeremy Wade says that it was due to the lack of nuts and seeds? I found a paper supporting this idea. www.scielo.br/scielo.php?pid=S1679-62252015005030212&script=sci_arttext

Apparently, according to the article, it is unnatural to find pacu aquatic plants and fish. Well, somehow.
