Have you been out in the boat on a sunny day with the sails set at a lazy reach and glanced up to see a fin sticking out of the water on starboard? What is that?

Aquariums

There are over 20,000 identified species of fish in the oceans, lakes, streams and pools of the world with perhaps as many not yet identified.  That's a lot of fish!  It is now believed that there are fish even in the deepest parts of the sea and there are fish living in the highest lake in the world, Lake Titicaca in Peru  The biggest fish is the whale shark, growing to over 50 feet and weighing in at over 2 tons....the smallest, the itsy bitsy goby found in fresh water lakes in the Philippines.  And some fish sleep and some don't.  Some are in the wild and many are in aquariums, some even live in screen savers!  People watch fish, raise fish, swim with fish, catch fish and eat fish.  Fish are God's gift to the seas.  My cat really likes to watch the fish from the boat.  I wonder if she can see through the water, she sits so still and wonders why she doesn't like that wet stuff!  

And that fin we mentioned at the top of the page was probably a sunfish, growing up to ten feet in length and weighing over 3,000 pounds for a really big one.  They love to float on the surface, basking in the rays, thus the name.
