Phases of the Moon

The phases of the moon can have a large effect on the feeding habits of fish because of the movement of tides and the ability of fish to feed throughout the night. Moon phases have an effect on the behavior of all animals, including humans with crime rates rising and dropping with the phases of the moon. The moon is the only source of natural night light. When it is a full moon there is a lot of light, but when there is a new moon there is little to none at all.
