Why do sailfish have such large dorsal fins?



  1. 0 Votes

    The dorsal fin of the sailfish is normally kept folded down and to the side when swimming, but it may be raised when the sailfish feels threatened or excited, making the fish appear much larger than it actually is. This tactic has also been observed during feeding, when a group of sailfish use their sails to “herd” a school of fish or squid.
