Tube Dude really appreciates the majestic and beautiful sailfish. We Floridians enjoy the privilege of being surrounded by the ocean and all kinds of gorgeous sea life. The sailfish, in particular, has a magnificent appearance.
For fun, let’s create a nice smile by checking out one of our favorite sea creatures.
So, even if you don’t recall which fish this is, we know you’ve seen the one with the impressive dorsal crest and the long, sword-shaped nose. It’s very similar to the swordfish, but with a more handsome fin atop it.
Did you know that the sailfish is the fastest fish in the world?
Yes, that aerodynamic dorsal fin allows them to cruise the waters at a velocity of 68 mph. That’s impressive in its own right for any fish, but the sailfish is not a lightweight either. He plumbs the depths of the ocean, some 1,000 feet deep, with a nearly 7-foot-long frame and weighs about 200 pounds.
The neat dorsal fin gives the male sailfish some other advantages as well. Sort of like an ocean-style peacock, he also uses the dorsal fin for attracting all the lady sailfish. When they mate, the female sailfish releases millions of eggs at one time, and a newborn sailfish comes into this world just over a millimeter in length (very humble beginnings).
So, if you see a sailfish, swordfish, or marlin near you, smile and say hello. Also, be sure not to abandon your fishing gear in the water and cause them to get needlessly tangled.
