Fish Trained To Perform Amazing Tricks

Meet the REEL-y impressive fish that show any-FIN is possible after learning to swim through hoops and being able to recognize colours and shapes through obedience training.

Michelle Benedict and Megumi Stahel, from the Dophin Quest Oahu in Hawaii, spend up to 20 hours a week teaching tricks to the sea creatures, in their multispecies training programme.

They have taught over 15 species and more than 50 individual fish some of the impressive cognitive games that can take between a few sessions and a few months to master.

These include recognising specific coloured or shaped bricks to pick them out from a line-up, swimming through hoops, finding a bullseye and more.
