The billfish is fixed at the apex of the oceanic food chain. Composed of sailfish, marlin, spearfish, and swordfish, they roam the pelagic waters of the Atlantic and are easily recognized by their long, spear-like beaks.

Standing waist deep in a stream or a lake for hours on end provides plenty of time for reflection and aimless musings. Do trout sleep? And if so, when? And how does that affect their feeding patterns? Is there any truth to the notion that a rising or falling barometer can affect feeding habits? How does refraction influence a fish?s approach to a... more...
