SAILFISH

Good morning all here we are at Tuesday again and we are only in February.

This weeks extreme creature is the Sailfish, this is the worlds fastest fish with a shape that is perfect for moving fast through the water. It has been clocked at a top speed of 110km/h.

The largest sailfish ever caught was 11.2 feet (340 cm) long and weighed 220.5 pounds (100 kg). 4. Sailfish can live for 13 to 15 years. However, sailfish caught and released by sport fishermen have an average lifespan of only 4 to 5 yrs

The all-tackle world record for a sailfish caught in the Pacific: 221 pounds (Ecuador, 1947); for a sailfish from the Atlantic: 142 pounds, 6 ounces (Angola, 2014). Iconic for their distinctive high, blue dorsal fins, sailfish generally live offshore but near coasts, often over deeper reefs.
