I think species of fish is a big consideration here, and South American species from the Amazon are probably not good candidates. Other fish species from regions with bigger temperature fluctuations might be a different story though.
Heh I wouldn't think too hard on it. The article cites "experts" and nothing else. Meaning they have no actual source for this other then 'that guy sitting next to me when I write the article.'

Seriously unless someone can point out any kind of actual research into this I would gleefully ignore something this generic. I think wild fish tend to be more robust because their diet is better and their breeding is far more diverse then tank raised fish.
