Top 10 FASTEST DEEP SEA CREATURES


Welcome to Top10Archive! We’ve all heard the
expression “a fish out of water” – that’s exactly what we are when we compare ourselves
to the master swimmers some of these marine animals are. You may be surprised to know
#1 can swim faster than a Cheetah can run.. 10. Bone Fish
The bone fish inhabits tropical and warm temperate waters worldwide and travel in schools until
adulthood, then go at life solo. They can get to be 14 pounds or 6 kilograms in weight
and 2.5 feet or 77 centimeters in length. The top half of the bone fish is a bluish-green
color, with bright silver scales along its sides and underbelly. Distinctive characteristics
include a sucker type mouth, a cone-shaped head and a deeply forked tail. They also have
no spine, helping them as a bottom dweller, while they feed on crabs, shrimp, and worms.
Whole schools may be easily spooked, but Bonefish are built for speed out of necessity, as it
is their only defense against predators. At short bursts of speed, Bonefish can reach
40 miles or 64 kilometers per hour. 9. Blue Sharks
It is highly unlikely that you’ll ever see this shark, that is, unless you’re diving;
blue sharks are found in deep subtropical waters in cooler areas. They sometimes travel
thousands of miles in order to follow food sources, preferring squid as their main course,
though they will eat other smaller sharks, mollusks and various fish. Obtaining food
is a bit easier for the blue shark, as they are one of the few species that will stick
together, hunting in small packs. On average, these sharks will get to 12.5 feet or 4 meters
in length and 450 pounds or 204 kilograms in weight, which is not as hefty as most sharks.
Though rarely, Blue Sharks have been known to attack humans and boats, and are considered
a dangerous species. Over short distances, the Blue Shark can reach speeds of 43 miles
or 69 kilometers per hour. 8. Wahoo
The Wahoo fish, located in tropic and sub-tropic saltwater areas across the world, are medium
sized creatures with the largest Wahoo being a reported a 8 feet or 2.4 meters in length
and about 184 pounds or 83 kilograms in weight. The overwhelming abundance of this fish has
made it a target for commercial fisherman and scientists alike. Often mistaken for a
mackerel, their difference lies in a patch of skin that covers the mouth of the Wahoo
when closed, and the Wahoo’s mandible does not show prominently. They sport razor-sharp
teeth as well as bladelike fins, which they use to help propel them through the water
at around 48 miles or 77 kilometers per hour. Considered to be highly aggressive, any fish
or animal that can fit in its mouth is considered food, but they are mainly known to eat squid.
7. Yellowfin Tuna The most colorful of all tunas, their back
is bluish black, fading into silver on the lower flanks and belly with a golden yellow
or iridescent blue stripe that runs from the eye to the tail. Yellowfin Tuna have been
reported to be as large as 8 feet or 2.4 meters in length and weigh up to 440 pounds or 229
kilograms. Found worldwide in warm temperate waters, its diet depends on the local cuisine,
which range from flying fish, squid, crustaceans and other small fish. They are migratory and
travel in schools, consisting of other fish their size, which include whale sharks, whales,
porpoises and dolphins. Able to fold their fins inward, this allowed the Yellowfish Tuna
to streamline their torsos and maximized their swimming speeds up to 50 miles or 80 kilometers
per hour. 6. Blue Marlin
Largest amongst the billfish family, they reach a length of 14 feet or 4.25 meters and
weigh more than 2,000lbs or 900 kilograms. Blue Marlins can put up an incredible fight
when hooked and it is no wonder why sport fishermen consider landing a Blue Marlin a
notch in the belt when they do. They are native to the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans
and migrate these as they follow the seasonal currents. Marine Biologists don’t consider
this fish endangered yet, but there is still concern of them being overfished and is why
most anglers participate in a “catch a release” program. Blue Marlins tend to be solitary
creatures, feasting on smaller fish near the surface and diving deeper for squid during
the day. They are a powerful swimming engine that has exceeded 50 miles or 80 kilometers
per hour. 5. Mahi-Mahi
Found in warm tropical climates, Mahi-Mahi are also called dolphinfish which often confuses
people to think they are a porpoise or dolphin. Mahi-Mahi are not marine mammals and have
no relation to the dolphin family whatsoever. Males and females can easily be distinguished
as the males have pronounced heads with an obtrusive forehead, and the females have rounded
heads. They reach lengths of 4.5 feet or 1.4 meters and get up to 40 pounds or 18 kilograms.
Mahi-Mahi have a long dorsal fin running from their head to the lower back and a tall narrow
shaped body, which makes them ideal swimmers reaching speeds of 57.5 miles or 93 kilometers
per hour. 4. Mako Shark
These sharks are found all over the world, including shallow waters close to shorelines
and deep waters, regardless of whether it is warm or cold waters. Consuming on primarily
tuna, herring and swordfish, but not limited to this diet, Mako sharks aren’t picky when
it comes to food. It isn’t uncommon for this shark to be seen leaping 20 feet or 6 meters
out of the water, and although there is no known reason why they do this, it is speculated
that they are searching for food. Using flexible scales on its body, the Mako Shark can pull
off tight underwater turns during high-speed pursuits that can reach 60 miles or 97 kilometers
per hour. Averaging 8 feet or 2.4 meters in length, these sharks can carry their weight
well, which can be up to 1,000 pounds or 454 kilograms.
3. Swordfish Also called a Broadbill, they are a large
marine fish of tropical and temperate waters throughout the world. They are an important
commercial fish, with thousands of tons harvested annually, of which, Japan accounts for 1/4
of the world catch. They are caught with harpoons or by setting up lures on lines as they can
slash their way out of nets. Swordfish can weight more than 1,000 pounds or 450 kilograms,
but on average are about 200 pounds or 91 kilograms. A “sword” on a Swordfish is about
1/3 of its body length and are speculated by scientists to help break up schools of
fish so it can attack them one at a time. They may also use it as an aid in swimming
as it breaks the flow of water, making it easier for them to swim. Swordfish can slice
through the water at speeds of 60 miles or 97 kilometers per hour.
2. Sailfish Related to other “billed” fish, such as Marlins
and Swordfish, Sailfish can travel up to 68 miles or 109 kilometers per hour. Popular
amongst sport fishermen for the challenge, they are also notoriously hard to study because
they migrate frequently and are found hundreds of miles from shore. Unfortunately, overfishing
has seen a decline in their numbers over the years, which is relatively surprising since
they have little value in commercial enterprises as their meat is relatively tough. Sailfish
live in both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, reaching an average of 6 feet or 1.8 meters
in length. 1. Black Marlin
A highly rated game fish, anglers would love to contend with this fish’s size, power, and
persistence, but be warned, it can travel up to 80 miles 129 kilometers per hour. It
is easily identified, as it is the only marlin that has rigid pectoral fins that cannot lie
flat against its body without breaking the joints. These fish can reach a length of 16
feet or 5 meters and weigh up to 1650 pounds or 750 kilograms. Slight variations in color
cause some Black Marlin to have a silvery haze, hence being called the silver marlin
in Hawaii, and white marlin in Japan.
