How Long Have Fish Been Around For?

Fish have been around for millions of years. In fact, they have been around longer than the dinosaurs. Some people think that some modern day land animals evolved from fish. In the following video from Fat Boy Slim, he shows pretty accurately how it all happened…

Fish have been on this planet for around 450,000,000 years. Not the fish in your fish tank though. They’ve probably only been swimming around for a year or so. Their great great great great great great grandad however, would have been alive 45 years ago…which is still a long way off their ancestors. The average life of a goldfish is seven years. So work from that point back.
