If I were a fish
I have always loved fish because it is a unique creature; in the corner of my room is an aquarium where I keep different type species of fish. I love goldfish because of its bright colors. I have always wondered how fish survive in the sea. If I were a fish, I would prefer being a goldfish with bright colors. I could swim the whole day without caring much of what goes on in the world. Seeing the fish in the aquarium of my room makes me imagine myself as a fish. I wonder which color will suit me, is it white, black, or grey fish.
My new home will be the cold seawater with pebbles. I would not like to live in an enclosed aquarium like the fish in my room because I think it’s limiting. I prefer living in a big sea with fresh water where I can swim throughout from one place to the other. I would meet all types of fish like goldfish and make many new friends. I would see other beautiful sea creatures that I always read about. I imagine meeting other species with two huge white spots on their body others with flat orange tails. I imagine living in clear water, swimming every time I want to, and visiting all places I feel like. However, I fear being trapped in a fisherman’s net with my friends knowing that we are going to be eaten by humans; this is the only idea that frightens me. I cannot imagine that if I am a fish, my life can be cut short by fishermen.
I have always imagined that if I were a fish, I would be small but cute fish. I imagine that sea life will be easy because all I have to do is swim. I would be happy because all I need to do is swim and look for food which is readily available within my surrounding without worrying much about life. Since I do not know how to swim, if I were a fish I would easily swim just like walking in the street.
Since fish move against the current using my fins, I can swim with little effort that why I prefer living underwater compared to living on earth. With my stiff bright layer of my outer skin, water will not enter into my body, and I would have a glowing skin if I were a fish. I have always wondered how fish survive in water without their skin being damaged; these are some of the experiences I will encounter if I were a fish. Having a special structure of the backbone and muscles, I can move forward and backward, upward and downward with ease. I can swim up to the bottom of the sea without drowning because of the air sacs in my body. If I want to rise to the water surface, all I need to do is to fill the sacs with air. These are the many exciting things I would experience if I were a fish.
I have always imagined living in a big sea with other creatures; if I was a fish, I could swim delightfully with my friend meet new friends and other fish. I would enjoy the company of other colleagues and older fish and living life blissfully. I can imagine encountering other unfriendly creatures that would scare us and chase us away from their playing ground. I would not like to be a pet fish. Instead, I prefer living in the deep waters of the sea where I can see the beautiful sea world.
Fish Life In The Sea Essay
“In the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and day, and the ships which sail the seas to people's benefit, and the water which Allah sends down from the sky - by which He brings the earth to life when it was dead and scatters about in it creatures of every kind - and the varying direction of the winds, and the clouds subservient between heaven and earth, there
are Signs for people who use their intellect.”
(Surat al-Baqara: 164)
Fish are one of Allah’s mighty creations on this world. Fish are just another common type of organism which exists on this Earth. Fish are everywhere; from the aquarium in an office to the Atlantic Ocean and from the book “Fish Tales” to the notorious movie “Finding Nemo.” The term fish usually refers to a cold blooded (exothermic) aquatic vertebrate which lives and swims inside the water.
Ichthyologists say that there are more than 32,000 species of fishes discovered on Earth so far which is more than all the amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals combined. Still, new species are being discovered almost every day. Large areas beneath the ocean surface still remain unexplored. It is predicted that there might be more species of fish which are hidden from the eyes of humans till now. All fish differ in sizes. A fish can be as big as a 51 ft long Whale/Shark or as small as an 8mm Stout infant fish. Common type of fish include; gold-fish, Drum, Spadefish, Trout, Skate, Thalla, Tuna, Hogfish, Wahoo, Grunt, Monkfish, Roughy etc. Some organisms which are considered to be a fish actually do not fall into the category of fish. Examples include; shellfish, cuttlefish, starfish, crayfish and jellyfish.
Have you ever wondered how fish are able to survive inside the water? Do you notice how acrobatic and lissome fish are in water? Let’s see how fish are able to live in the water. A typical fish has a streamlined body covered with scales. These scales which are made of bones similar to human teeth are then covered by a layer of slime which prevents water to get inside the body of a fish and almost, it helps a fish to move through the water. Swim bladders/ air sacs in the abdomen of a fish help it move not only forward and backward, but also upward and downward. Fish carry a pair of fins supported by rays of cartilage or bone. Unlike humans, fish breathe through a pair of gills. There are a very few fish which are warm-blooded. Such fish include Tuna, Swordfish and some species of sharks.
Most fishes have keen sense of vision which helps them to capture food, hide from the predicate, locate shelter or find a mate. Many fishes see color and some are able to see in very low light levels. It might be flabbergasting to hear but fish also have the ability to taste. They have taste buds on their lips, tongue and mouth. Fish have jaws that allow them to eat a wide variety of food, including plants and other organisms. Fish ingest food through the mouth and break it down in their...
