Salty Shark 咸鲨鱼

Most of the fish have little salt or do not taste salty at all. Sharks are unique. Accordingly to, they have meat as salty as the ocean they live in. So now you know how much salt to include in your shark meat or rather just release them : ) 
大多数的鱼肉本身都不含有盐分可是鲨鱼就不一样。根据, 鲨鱼的肉里的盐分能与他们所居住的海相比。 下次在吃鲨鱼肉时就知道因该要下多少盐了。

Fish can drown 鱼也会淹死

Fish live in the sea but that does not mean that they don't drown. Just like us humans, fish need oxygen, so if there isn’t enough oxygen in the water, they will suffocate and drown. 
虽然鱼成长在水里不代表它们不会淹死。与人类相同, 鱼也需要氧气一旦水里的氧气不足它们就会被水淹死。

Most Poisonous Fish 

The most poisonous fish in the world is none other than the stone fish. The venom can cause unbearable pain, swelling, tissue death, shock paralysis and even death if not treated immediately. The next time if you hook a stone accidentally, it is wise to give it a second look before holding it in your hand.  
世上最毒的鱼是石。 它的毒液能引发无法忍受的痛感,红肿, 导致组织死亡,暂时瘫痪甚至死亡。 如果下次无意把一颗石头钓上来记得要再看一次, 而不要直接用双手去抓。
