Our oceans are home to some of the fastest animals on the planet.
The following video presentation produced by Epic Wildlife presents 15 of the fastest animals in the ocean. It even puts us on the list for comparative purposes by highlighting the fact that although our fastest swimmers can manage speeds of up to about 5 miles per hour, we are faster than many of the ocean’s animals.
Topping the list are Sailfish with speeds of up to 68mph, Yellwofin Tuna at 50mph and a species of Marlin found in the Indian and pacific Oceans which have a typical speed of about 50 mph. However, these Marlin have been clocked at speeds of up to 80 mph when hooked.
Watch the following video below for more information as will as the complete list of the 15 fastest animals in the ocean.
