Not So Fishy Fun Facts

I’ll be honest, I collected a lot of amazing facts about fish and sea life for this post. I used a lot of them to help talk about each coloring sheet down below, but I couldn’t fit them all in! So for all you fun fact and sea creature enthusiasts, I’ll leave more fun facts here:

  1. Some fish, like lanternfish, have special organs that produce light, making them look like they are glowing in the dark.
  2. The largest fish in the world is the whale shark, which can grow up to 40 feet long and weigh 20 tons.
  3. Globally, we consume around 150 million tons of fish each year, making it one of the most widely consumed protein sources on the planet.
  4. Male clownfish (Think Marlin in Nemo) are the primary caregivers of the eggs. They guard and aerate them until they hatch.
  5. The average lifespan of clownfish in the wild is 6 to 10 years.
  6. Goldfish do not have stomachs. Food just passes through their digestive system very quickly.
  7. Goldfish can see both visible and ultraviolet light which helps them detect predators and find food. 
  8. Jellyfish are not actually fish. They are classified as invertebrates.
  9. Some jellyfish have a symbiotic relationship with certain types of fish, where the fish lives inside the belly of the jellyfish for protection.
  10. Jellyfish have been used in medicine for many years – a protein found in some species of jellyfish is used in the development of a drug that helps to treat certain types of cancer. 
  11. Many starfish species are capable of opening and eating shellfish, which they do by prying open the shells with their arms.
  12. Squids can quickly change color and patterns on their skin to blend in with their surroundings, communicate with each other, or scare predators away.
  13. Squids have three hearts – two that pump blood to the gills and one that pumps oxygen-rich blood to the rest of their body.
  14. Pufferfish are also known as blowfish or balloonfish due to their ability to inflate themselves with water or air when threatened.
  15. Pufferfish have a unique swimming style where they use their fins to move in short bursts rather than constantly like most fish.
  16. Approximately half of the fish species can see ultraviolet light.
