    It might be quite interesting, if it suggest fish often prefer to circle in particular way(clock wise or anti clock wise)

    I would think that this would be determined by the direction of any water current. Fish, by nature, swim against a current/.

    Mine catch with their left and write with their other left...


    ...actually, my current goes left to right when I'm sitting watching them. But when I go outside my pondhouse, around the backside, and view them that way, they seem to switch and then they're swimming right to left! Most curious! As if they know I'm seeing them from a different direction now...
