Depending mostly on the weather I have to clean up the boat in the morning and gather the flying fish that have been spread over my deck. Sometimes I don’t have any for days and than I have lots three days in a row.
During the first week going from Indonesia to Mauritius I found a lot. The record now is 53 Flying Fish on deck within one night.
These fish, when they are being chased by bigger fish, jump out of the water and fly over it up to 10 m far. And when there is a lot of wind going, then they are blown on deck.
So far, I had them in the Atlantic and the Pacific and now also in the Indian Ocean.
