    This is a video of sushi chef Hironori Ikeno preparing his special -- tiny slices of fish atop single grains of rice. There is no way I could get one of those in my mouth without losing it first. And if it did make it to my face, I'd probably accidentally vacuum it up my nose... / Continue →

    This is a video of a goldfish in a little aquarium on wheels who can steer the thing by swimming in different directions (which is captured by a webcam). It's basically exactly like Finding Nemo, provided you've never seen the movie and thought it was about a fish who owned a ... / Continue →

    Snorkeling: it's like one step away from drowning. But now there's the Easybreath Snorkeling Mask, a snorkel that lets you breathe through your nose (just like on dry land!) for people who aren't coordinated enough to only breathe through their mouth. Fun fact: one time I was... / Continue →

    This is the PELEG DESIGN's Yolkfish, a small rubber kitchen utensil that can suck egg yolks out of the whites. Plus-- "You can use it on your balls?" Well 1. not if you're cooking me breakfast and 2. that's not what I was going to say, but now that you mention it, it's all th... / Continue →

    This is a godawful quality video (after the jump) of an African Tigerfish (above) leaping out of the water to catch a bird mid-flight. Sucks to be that bird. Of course, it shouldn't have been flying so close to the surface in the first place. THAT'S WATER DUMMY, YOU DON'T BE... / Continue →

    Allegedly this is the first time a deep-sea squid has been filmed attacking a fish (and using its beak to drill into the fish's spinal cord -- BRUTAL). I have no idea if that's true or not because 1. I'm not a marine biologist and 2. I didn't Google it. Allegedly it is though... / Continue →

    This is an underwater video taken from the back of a speeding boat of a sailfish trying to bludgeon bait fish with its elongated bill and eat them. He has zero success, probably because all the fish are fake. If I were him I would have jumped into the back of the boat and spe... / Continue →

    This is the unidentified mystery fish caught by fisherman Sapar Mansor off the coast of Tudan, Malaysia. I'm not sure I would eat it, but I would. I'll eat almost anything, including playground sand. The creature has two tusk-like spikes near its mouth and measures over one ... / Continue →

    These are a series of 3-D resin paintings by DeviantARTist Kenglye. He creates the 3-D effect by pouring a thin layer of resin, painting that layer, pouring another thin layer, painting that one, and repeating until he's built up a real looking fish or octopus or turtle. Most... / Continue →

    Dammit dog, what part of 'Cheese!' don't you understand? This is the 5.5-meter (~18-foot) giant oarfish a snorkeler spotted just offshore Catalina Island in California. It was dead. Giant Oarfish normally frequent depths as deep as a kilometer (~2/3 of a mile) and are only s... / Continue →

    Seen here looking like a cross between a shark, killer whale, cowboy boot and a sea turtle with an unfortunate chin penis, is an artist's impression of Entelognathus, an ancient fish paleontologists believe may be the missing link between the extinct bony armored Placoderms and... / Continue →

    This is a video of a little puffer fish making an underwater crop (technically sand) circle. Presumably to attract a mate. Admittedly, I'm not even that into fish but I'd still take him on a date based on his artistry alone. What do you say, little guy -- me, you, a nice coz... / Continue →

    In 1994 employees at an unheard of company called Netscape pointed a live camera at a fishtank and streamed the shots to the web. And now, 19 years later, the feed is still live. Netscape Navigator? DEAD IN THE WATER. I remember the first time I came home from middle school... / Continue →

    That's right folks, the salmon are headed upriver and the brown bears in Alaska are ready to eat them. Explore.org's remote controlled 'Brown Bear and Salmon cam' is there to capture the action in Brook Falls, Alaska and beam it to your computer screen all day long so you can ... / Continue →

    This is a video of a goldfish that has trouble maintaining its buoyancy. So what did it's owner make? "A fishstick?" Good heavens no! They made it a little life preserver so it can still swim around instead of laying at the bottom of the tank all day being sad. The fish ha... / Continue →

    This is a brief video from Japan's National Institute of Genetics of what's believed to be the world's first footage of a thought being formed. $10 says Hollywood tries to turn it into a movie. The thought existed in the brain of a zebrafish, and is basically "FOOD!". Haha, ... / Continue →

    This is a photo of a pike that died trying to swallow a zander fish almost as big as it is. Like a middle school cafeteria lady once told me after I couldn't finish all the lasagna I'd asked for, "Your eyes must be bigger than your stomach." Oh yeah? If my eyes are really bi... / Continue →

    Sorry folks, I was having a little laptop trouble this morning so I had to break it over my knee and go buy a new one. THERE WAS NO OTHER OPTION. In hindsight I kind of regret not backing it up first though. This is a video of a dolphin stampede captured by Dolphin Safaris i... / Continue →

    This is a short video of a giant jack fish tornado captured by marine biologist Octavio Aburto at Cabo Pulmo National Park in Mexico. Why would fish ever want to be in a tornado? SPOILER: to get to Oz. "And why would fish want to end up in Oz?" Beats ending up in a Long Joh... / Continue →

    This is a video of pigeon-hunting catfish in the shallows of the River Tarn in Southwestern France. Basically the 1 - 1.5-meter (~3 - 5-foot) long European Catfish throw themselves onto land when they sense a bird nearby, then wriggle themselves back into the water to swallow ... / Continue →
