The answer regarding the question about how many times per second a flying fish moves its tail is 70. This speed is the reason why they can thrust themselves into the air and stay in flight for more or less than 160 feet; less than 1,300 feet if they are jumping or flying by using the edge of waves. Flying fish is unlike any other fish mainly because they can fly through the air.
A two-winged flying fish grows between 7 to 12 inches long while a four-winged flying fish can grow up to 15 inches long. They use their ability to fly not only because they want to spend some time in the air, but also because they can use it to avoid their predators and survive.
