Do fish swim backwards?
The design of the fish tail allows you to push the body only forward, and the fish is only able to back up a little with the help of the pectoral fins. However, representatives of the family of pufferfish (tetradons), which include the ball fish (pictured) and fugu, swim quite deftly with their tail forward.
These species live in areas with rocky or rocky bottoms that have many cracks and depressions.
Increased maneuverability allows the fish to quickly turn around, chasing small prey, or pick up fallen pieces of food in tight crevices.
