Fish are a vertebrate class, like mammals, however they are cold-blooded and live in water. Fish are one of the oldest classes of animals, having been on the Earth for more than 500 million years. Additionally, while all fish share the common traits of having a backbone and living in water, they are one of the most diverse classes with about 32,000 different living species (which is more species than amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals combined). Due to the unique properties of water to transmit scent, taste, sound, and electricity, many fish have evolved to rely less on their sense of sight and more on their other senses.

What do fish eat?

The diet of fish is very diverse as the number of fish species is very large. Some fish are carnivores, while other species of fish are herbivores or omnivores. Fish generally eat small organisms, algae, and sometimes can even eat other fish. The food that fish eat depends on their species, size, and environment.

How long do fish live?

The lifespan of a fish usually depends on the species. A fish may live anywhere between a year to 200 years – it all depends on the species of fish. The lifespan of a fish typically depends on their size, species, and whether they live in the wild or captivity.

How do fish sleep?

Fish do not sleep in the same form and manner that land mammals sleep. Fish sleep by reducing their activity and metabolism while remaining alert to any potential danger. While sleeping some fish float in place, in a secure spot within the mud, or find a nest. During sleep, fish perform restorative functions.

Longnose Sawshark (Pristiophorus cirratus)
Scale illustration of an average Longnose Sawshark with dimensions for height and length compared to a human

Like other sawsharks, the Longnose Sawshark (Pristiophorus cirratus) has a slender and very long snout. It also has a flattened body and can be referred to as a common sawshark. It is white ventrally, but dorsally it is yellow or grayish-brown with some faint black spots on the back. Look for it in the eastern Indian Ocean, especially around southern Australia, on sandy or gravelly areas feeding on small crustaceans. The five gills on the side of its head distinguish it from sawfish. The Longnose Sawshark is ovoviviparous and highly productive compared to other sharks. Another characteristic includes a lack of an anal fin.

Longnose Sawsharks have a total length between 54”-59” (137-150 cm) and body width of 4.3”-5.1” (11-13 cm). The typical weight of the Longnose Sawshark is in the range of 20-30 lb (9-13.6 kg). Longnose Sawsharks have lifespans between 10-15 years.

Bonefish
Measured comparison illustration of the size of a Bonefish to a typical person

The Bonefish (Albula vulpes) is a solitary traveler and member of the family Albulidae and are also called Banana fish or Ladyfish. They have slender and relatively long bodies with somewhat green backs and yellow pectoral fins. Bonefish exhibit high levels of speed and strength, preference for shallow coastal and island waters of warm seas.

They have a pointed piglike snout that holds their small mouth and deeply notched caudal fin. The bonefish is an important ingredient in fly-fishing for the people of Southern Florida, Bahamas, and Puerto Rico. They love to feed in areas of low tides and protected bays.

Bonefish have a total length between 16”-30” (40-75 cm), body height of 3.5”-6.5” (8.9-16.5 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 7-20 lb (3-9 kg). The typical lifespan of the Bonefish is 10-20 years.

Atlantic Tarpon
Dimensioned comparison drawing of the Atlantic Tarpon compared to an average person

The Atlantic Tarpon (Megalops atlanticus) can be found in the Atlantic ocean and Indo-Pacific seas and also often in freshwater environments. They belong to the family Megalopidae and love warm shallow darker waters having sandy and muddy bottoms.

They sport large eyes, shiny silvery scales, and blue to green backs plus an elongated dorsal fin ray and anal fin ray. The Tarpon exhibit three distinctive levels of development that take place in varying habitats. It is a popular game fish because of its high-flying antics, elusive nature, size, and fighting spirit. Besides, the tarpon also has a swim bladder that it also uses as a respiratory organ.

Atlantic Tarpons have a total length between 5’-8’ (152-244 cm), body height of 12”-19” (30.5-48 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 60-280 lb (27-127 kg). The typical lifespan of the Atlantic Tarpon is 30-55 years.

Atlantic Blue Marlin
Dimensioned comparison drawing of the Atlantic Blue Marlin compared to an average person

The Atlantic Blue Marlin (Makaira nigricans) is a large ocean fish that populates the warm and tropical waters worldwide. They belong to the family Istiophoridae and are fast swimmers with females being larger than males. They are highly recognized by their striking beauty, lethal, spear-shaped upper jaw, and pronounced dorsal fins.

The bill of the Atlantic Blue Marlin is also round and pointed, which separated them from other similar looking fish. The Blue Marlin loves the deep open ocean and migrates to follow the warm ocean currents. They are loved by sports fishermen because of their fighting spirit when caught and have also featured in the commonwealth of the Bahamas coat of arms.

Atlantic Blue Marlins have a total length between 5.5’-14’ (1.7-4.3 m), body height of 10”-23” (25.4-58.4 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 200-1800 lb (90-816 kg). The typical lifespan of the Atlantic Blue Marlin is 20-30 years.

Pallid Sturgeon (Scaphirhynchus albus)
Scale illustration of an average Pallid Sturgeon compared to a human and other freshwater fish species

The Pallid Sturgeon (Scaphirhynchus albus) gets its name from the pale coloration. It is found in the lower Mississippi river basin and the water bodies of Missouri. It has a slow growth rate but is long-lived. The Pallid sturgeon has maintained most of its primitive features and is separated from the shovelnose sturgeon by its enormous size. It is rarely seen, and very little is known about it since it is a bottom-dweller. Apart from the pale coloration on the body, the backs and sides are greyish-white, while the tail is heterocercal. The body lacks scales nor bones but is made of a cartilaginous skeleton. The head and snout are longer, making it have an extended mouth. However, it lacks teeth.

Pallid Sturgeon have a total length between 30”-60” (76-152 cm) and body height of 3.5”-7.1” (9-18 cm). The typical weight of the Pallid Sturgeon is in the range of 80-100 lb (36-45 kg). Pallid Sturgeon have lifespans between 40-70 years.
