Can Sun and Moon Charts Predict Wildlife Activity?

Systems claiming to predict fish and wildlife activity based on solar and lunar gravitational forces are popular among sportsmen. If valid, these could have implications for wildlife management.

Neither system accurately or consistently predicted activity, although some data sets revealed suggestive relationships.
