Fascinating Fishes

This 6-minute educational video invites students to learn about the sentience and capabilities of fishes. It provides an introduction to the biology and behaviour of the broad variety of animals falling under the umbrella of ‘fishes’. It accompanies our Facts and Fishes APE, which includes a suite of lesson plans, an infographic, a factsheet and more!

Busting various myths about their capacities, it offers an insight into the intelligent and social nature of these fascinating animals. Through reflection, students are encouraged to critically think about whether human treatment of fishes reflects what we know about their intelligence and sentience.

Contains no graphic footage.
Suitable for use in high school classrooms for Years 7 and above.
