Pelagic fish Bay of Bengal

By Samyak Kaninde

While on pelagic birding trips in the Bay of Bengal off Chennai,we would encounter flying fish. They would take off from under and around the boat,fly over the sea and re-enter the water! It is an amazing sight to watch a school of these fish in action.

Flying fish live in all of the oceans,particularly in tropical and warm subtropical waters; there are about sixty-four species of them in the world. Thanks to their streamlined torpedo shape,they gather enough underwater speed to break the surface,where their long,wing-like pectoral fins enable gliding flight for considerable distances above the water’s surface.

In this image,you can clearly see the highly specialised ‘wings’ of the flying fish,which enable it to fly over the water with ease.

Fish Stocks/ Windpower/ Wave Generators

I have read that ocean fish stocks will be gone in a few years. And I have been thinking since I heard that Massachusetts refused to build wind turbines in Long Island Sound as they were unattractive, why not build some in the pacific where we could create national sea life refuges?
This would help out coastal communities in several regards. Some people would come see the turbines, much like some people visit lighthouses. The energy produced would ease any difficulties coastal communities may face from their currently existing long distance power transmissions. And they would get the benefit of knowing that fish will be around in the future
