  3. 3. Appearance Some species will also have Dull pointed snout enlarged pelvic fins Smooth, scaly skin
  4. 4. Habitat ‐ Tropical and subtropical watersThey Live In… ‐ Open oceans and shallow seas ‐ Indian, Atlantic, and Pacific Ocean
  5. 5. Life Cycle1. Female lays eggs on seaweed or  debris so egg can cling on to it.  Male and female die shortly after. Flying fish eggs2. After they are born, they will  sometimes swim inshore where  they would frequently be fished.3. Once aged, adult flying fish will  swim in schools where they feed  Baby flying fish on plankton and other smaller  fishes.4. Life cycle starts over. Adult flying fish

  8. 8. Contribution to the Diversity of Life• Keep other species from overpopulating by  eating them, eg. crustaceans, plankton, and other  species of fish.• Popular food in many countries and considered a  delicacy.• Used as bait for catching large fish like marlins  and dolphins.

  10. 10. What Can be Done to Help this  Species Continue to Survive• Continuing to keep fishing to a minimum• Ensuring proper maintenance of oil and gas  tanks on boats• Not littering in the ocean
