Fish Talk To Each Other

Did you know that all fish can hear but some can even speak?

"The undersea world isn't as quiet as we thought, according to a New Zealand researcher who found fish can "talk" to each other.

Fish communicate with noises including grunts, chirps and pops, University of Auckland marine scientist Shahriman Ghazali has discovered according to newspaper reports Wednesday.

"All fish can hear, but not all can make sound -- pops and other sounds made by vibrating their swim bladder, a muscle they can contract," Ghazali told theNew Zealand Herald.
Fish are believed to communicate with each other for different reasons, including attracting mates, scaring off predators or orienting themselves."
