  1. I really enjoyed this blog and the photo looks beautiful! i suppose it makes sense that fish don’t have eyelids as, apparently eyelids are used for blinking which keeps the eyes moist and prevents them from drying up. Since fish are already in the water…they don’t need eyelids.

  2. Hi Aleysha M,
    Well we were watching a video conference on the whiteboard called Marine Scotland Science .Well we know fish are asleep because a expert scientist told us. Marine Scotland Science told us new facts about fishes, sharks, whales and anything that lives in the sea.

  3. I have four fish called Spotty, Max, Ruby and Bob. Spotty is a cleaner fish which means he cleans the fish tank and he does a good job of it. Max and Ruby are goldfish and Bob is a black fish that has really 3-D eyes. They have to be fed once a day. They don’t have eye lids so that means they don’t blink. From Mia 🙂

  4. Hi Brianna
    I know that fish don’t have eyelids because after I’ve been fishing with my dad and we’re filliting them, I take the fishs’ eyes out and look at them! Then I feed them to the birds! Its surprisingly fun! Scotlands fish also swim into English waters so you’ll find that fish do have no eyelids in England too!

  5. Hi Sophie
    I have 1 goldfish called Dec and 1 angelfish called Dotty at home I wonderd why they didn’t blink too but I found out when I watched the glow meet that they didn’t even have eyelids to blink with.

  6. We know fish sleep because a trusted scientist said that they did on a glow meet. Glow meet is just video conferencing. It was about mariene biology.
