We are NOT Dolphin Trainers!

I find it very amusing when the media make funny mistakes and assumptions. Such was the case when the British tabloid the Daily Mirror covered Fish School. To quote the article:

"He's incredible," says Dean Pomerleau, a dolphin trainer
who began teaching Albert after nine-year-old son Kyle won him at a fair.
For the record - I'm not a dolphin trainer. I bet they saw this picture from our about us page of our website, and just assumed I must be a dolphin trainer. In fact, that picture was taken during a wonderful dolphin encounter experience Kyle and I had while on vacation with my family in the Bahamas - which was a lot of fun. I'm a professional pet fish trainer, and haven't (yet) worked with dolphins - although someday I'd like to!

Otherwise, it was a pretty good story and is available on-line in case you'd like to read it.
