Is it REALLY necessary to blind them? Could you not control the entrance
of light into the experimental chambers? I managed to do so extremely
successfully for a different group of marine animals which were then
released at the end of the experimental period, totally unharmed (at
least apparently so). That seems to me like a lot more feasible, and
kind, that what you are contemplating doing.
