Disappearing trick of fish can fool animals with super sight

Disappearing trick of fish can fool animals with super sight

The silvery skin of fish like herrings, sardines, mackerel and tuna act like mirrors, reflecting their watery surroundings to better blend in and the effect serves as a kind of underwater invisibility cloak that helps them hide even from animals with super sight, new research has found.
