Fish varieties that do not swim

Sat, Jan 23, 2016, 04:28 PM
There are certain fish species that remain in water but cannot swim. Scientists have found the fish species in the waters off Australia.

Australian scientists say the fish such as Hand-fish and Bat-fish belong to this category. The scientists have found that there are 14 such species in all.

The gills of these fish are modified as strong muscles that help the fish to use them as feet to crawl. Their feet are webbed. They live on the bottom of the ocean and live off micro-organisms.


Australia has over 5000 described species of fish, a quarter of which are endemic. Seafood and aquaculture are major and highly regulated industries, and fishing for marine and freshwater native and stoked fish is popular.
