Random Question of the Day: If you put a male fish and female fish at opposite ends of a fishless lake the size of Lake Tahoe (22 miles long, 12 miles wide, 72 miles of shoreline, greatest depth of 1,645 feet). Do you think that they would eventually find each other and have baby fish?
Been thinking about this on and off for some time, and I really have no idea. Does it depend on the fish? Say there was a nuclear disaster and the world was almost wiped clean of human existence. Somehow a single male and female human survives this on the island of Guam (about 30 miles in length and 8 1/2 miles wide). They are on opposite sides of the island. Assuming there were no advanced communication systems available to them, would they eventually find each other and procreate?
