    Flying Fish

    Flying fish (Exocoetidae) can be seen jumping out of warm ocean waters worldwide. Their streamlined torpedo shape helps them gather enough underwater speed to break the surface, and their large, wing-like pectoral fins get them airborne.

    There are about 40 known species of flying fish. Beyond their useful pectoral fins, all have unevenly forked tails, with the lower lobe longer than the upper lobe. Many species have enlarged pelvic fins as well and are known as four-winged flying fish.

    The process of taking flight, or gliding, begins by gaining great velocity underwater, about 37 miles (60 kilometers) per hour. Angling upward, the four-winged flying fish breaks the surface and begins to taxi by rapidly beating its tail while it is still beneath the surface. It then takes to the air, sometimes reaching heights over 4 feet (1.2 meters) and gliding long distances, up to 655 feet (200 meters). Once it nears the surface again, it can flap its tail and taxi without fully returning to the water. Capable of continuing its flight in such a manner, flying fish have been recorded stretching out their flights with consecutive glides spanning distances up to 1,312 feet (400 meters).

    This doesn’t have much to do with my blog but I thought I’d share. I cut this cherry tree down when I was 16 with the idea of building a guitar someday… 9 years later after tons of research the body is done and ready for the custom pickups a buddy of mine is making

    I love this photo, It is a perfect representation of just how Alaskan fish get so enormous. Fish are in-determinant growers. This means they can just grow and grow so long as they have enough food. Surplus food means surplus growth. If there is one thing Alaskan fish have, it’s plenty to eat.
