Abstract

This brief article discusses some of the findings of the impact of integrating fish into the therapeutic medium for different populations of people. It mentions research findings of the impacts of aquariums for alzheimer patients, dolphin assisted therapy for people with a variety of diagnoses, a sea turtle for an aputee and a stingray for a boy with Cerebral Palsy. It queries what impact a golfish in a therapy office might have.
