Teaching fish to Hunt?
 
Is it possible to train fish to hunt, like how you train dogs to hunt?

I got this idea from reading something about hunting dogs yesterday.

Fish innately know how to hunt, as it pertains to filling their belly. Could you train them to hunt like dogs? No, they do not have the mental capacity, nor do you have the control over the fish to facilitate such training.

Can you train them to do things? Yes, using food rewards. But a food reward loses it's effectiveness when the task involves eating food....
