When they break the water surface, the fish end up jumping in a long arc, splashing back down some distance away. The predator won't know where.

"One second the fish is there and the next second it's dodged the predator," says fish ecologist Professor Iain Suthers of the University of New South Wales.

He says this can be useful knowledge when you want to catch fish.

"If you're out fishing and see a little school of fish jump out there's a good chance if you cast your lure into them you'll catch the big predator fish like a tailor or a yellow-tailed kingfish."
