Sailfish

  • Speed: 110kph (68mph)

A sailfish is a fish of the genus Istiophorus that can be found in the coldest waters of all the seas in the world. According to animal experts, the sailfish is the fastest fish in the ocean and can’t grow more than 3 m (9.8 ft). 

Just like the blue marlin and swordfish, the sailfish is a type of billfish. Females can be larger than males because they have to carry a lot of eggs during the reproduction process. 

When they are young, they can feed on zooplankton and as adults, their diet consists of bony fish, crustaceans and squid. These species of fish can live up to 15 years.
