Why did the guppy cross the ocean?

To the surprise of the scientists, populations of a South American guppy have been found in the Fernando de Noronha archipelago, a volcanic island in the South Atlantic. 
 
It is unclear how the freshwater species crossed the ocean and came to populate the archipelago, reports the Science Daily. Researchers suggest that the US military in the Second World War may be behind the phenomenon.
