Flight is a remarkable part of creation and is not limited to birds and insects.
More than 60 species of fish also appear to enjoy leaving their watery home and slipping through the air. This ability avoids
predators and also is an efficient way to cover large distances. Fish flight begins as they rapidly whip their tails back
and forth and propel themselves directly out of the water. They are observed to glide more than 1300 feet (400 meters) while
traveling at 40 miles per hour (70 km/hr).
