ABSTRACT
Flying Fish, a fish having large fins with which it can glide through the air. Most flying fish live in tropical and subtropical areas of the ocean, but some range as far north as Maine. Flying fish are believed to take to the air to escape enemies. In the air, many become the prey of seabirds. The fish sometimes fall to the decks of ships, particularly when attracted by light at night.
