Longest video of flying fish released - 45 seconds flight above the water

Incredible... A japonese film shows the longest record of a flying fish in the air - 45 seconds! The fish was able to continue flying by occasionally beating the surface of the water with its tail fin when it began to lose altitude. The previous record was 42 seconds, filmed by some Americans in the 1920s. Apparently the flight of 45 seconds is close to the fish's physical limit, as brachial respiration is impossible while flying in the air...
