So,if a fish is scared of your hand,is it consider to be domesticated?
I have always thought that the word "domestication" involve the change in behavior and appearance from its wild counterpart due to human contact.
So,if the fish react to my hand,since it is an external stimuli when it comes to fish food,then I guess the fish are domesticated to a point,but if it is scared whenever I just want to touch it a little bit with my hand.
The fish swim away,so is that due to their wild instinct?
