Archer fish




Perciformes > Toxotidae

River mouths touching the sea


True to its name,

the Archerfish shoots water from

its mouth near the surface to catch insects

on plants out of the water.

They can shoot water far and accurately,

up to three meters away,

and have a near perfect hit rate.

They can live in both fresh and salt water,

so you can find them near the surface of

brackish water where rivers meet the ocean.
