WASHINGTON – Fishing on land may seem ridiculous, but a study has found 11 species of fish that can walk on land, either on the seabed or out of the water. Experts have observed in detail the structures of Asia’s famous Hill Stream Lochfish. Also, we know that cave-dwelling angelfish have similar abilities.
According to experts, there is a connection between a fish’s main bone and its feathers (fin), allowing these fish to move. Also, 29 other species of loch fish have been examined in detail. It found that about 10 or 11 more fish had similar characteristics and could walk on land.
Fish expert Reckrey Randall says there is usually no contact between the fish’s main bone and the pelvic floor, but it was first studied in a cave-dwelling angelfish and has now been found in the Hill Stream Loch fish family. Scientists believe that this ability in all these fish is due to the fast-flowing water in the opposite direction, and it has taken millions of years to evolve. That is why walking fish is found in the vicinity of falling waterfalls and waterfalls.
Scientists have examined the DNA of all fish as well as their structures with computer tomography. It was found that the ability to walk genetically is passed on from one generation to the next. In this way, this research will allow us to understand the evolution of fish and their ability to walk.
