FISH FOR MILES

In an attempt to ward off predators, schooling fish swim in groups, or schools, as a way to look bigger. In the wild, schools may contain billions of fish and stretch for many miles! The disadvantage of schooling behavior is that the fish are easily caught in nets.

Did you know that fish represent 50% of all vertebrate species, outnumbering all mammals, birds, reptiles, and amphibians combined?!
