Fish Swim and Aquarium Marine Life

Fish and more seen at aquariums

Fish is more often seen on a menu for those of us who live in the concrete jungle. To see fish swim and other amazing marine creatures, you need to head for the water or an aquarium.

Fortunate for me, I swam next to a bait ball in real time in the Sea of Cortez while on vacation. Seeing the fish form a fish tornado was unexpected and unforgettable.

Although I love to swim,  I have never wished to be any type of fish or even a mermaid. Instead, I visit aquariums.

Aquarium Fish Fun

I take photos when visiting aquariums and study how fish swim with no effort at all.

Now I am an avid fan of all things marine. I even bought a book, How Fish Think.

Snorkel anyone?

We pack our snorkel and fins when we vacation in Cabo San Lucas on the Baja Peninsula of California because we like to explore the coral in the Sea of Cortez.

There is more under water than you ever imagined. Nearly three-quarters of earth is underwater – dive in and explore.

Newly learned fish fact: whales and dolphins are classified as  mammals and not fish because they (1) breathe in air/have a pair of lungs, (2) are warm-blooded, (3) nurse their young with  milk, and (4) have a few strands of hair.
