Storyline

Countless fish fill the seas and almost all other waters on the blue planet, some even visit or invade bordering land. Evolution created a huge variety in size, shape, defense means etc., fit for varies ways of life in all kinds of waters, allowing camouflage, shelter etc. They occupy various positions in aquatic and related food chains, eaten by and/or eating other fish and vertebrates, crustaceans etc. Other relationships are parasitic or symbiotic. Some know role-reversal, with males caring for eggs and/or hatchlings. Many species live in huge schools, often for safety. Written by KGF Vissers

There's More Fish Out There Than We Realize
5 May 2010 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

We learn a few basic facts right up front in this episode, such as how fish all have backbones, are cold-blooded, breathe through gills, and that there are more species than all the birds, amphibians, reptiles and mammals put together on this earth! This "Life" episode has us on the move from the California coast and "turf wars" to the Southern Antarctic to Hawaii (called "paradise" here) and other areas around the globe.

Sea Dragons, Clownfish, Convict Fish, Mudskippers (on land), flying fish.....you name it, there's a fish with something different to it.

Also, an amazing sight were the schools of fish such as the millions of sardines which swim together to make to tough for their predators to pick them out and eat them! Fish aren't dumb! They know the best ways to hide and survive, like most creatures on the planet.

As usual, this is a good episode and worth viewing.
