What do I Know
I know that the whale shark is currently the biggest fish that we know of in the ocean but there is still about 95% of the ocean for us to explore so there is a good chance of a much larger fish in the ocean.
What Did I Learn
I learned that the Whale Shark is not the longest fish that we know about and the largest fish in the ocean to ever live is the Leedsichthys.
What do I want to know
I want to know why the whale shark was able to get so big as well as the other biggest fish and if there is multiple ways they get big.
What Action Will I Take
I will make a YouTube video and upload it. I will also tell my class about what I learned and I will present it in a google slideshow.
How will I learn it
I will research what the biggest fish are in the ocean and how they got so big I will also make a google slideshow.
What New Questions Do I Have
I wonder If out of the 95% of the ocean that has not been discovered if there is a bigger fish than the Leedsichthys.
In this round of passion time my question is what are the biggest fish in the ocean and how do they get so big? I figured out that the biggest fish to ever live in the ocean is the Leedsichthys. They were around about 165 million years ago they were 30-54 feet long. They got so big from filter feeding which means they take in a big gulp of water then they let the water out there gills and eat all the small fish like shrimp, krill, and algae. The whale shark is the current largest fish in the ocean. The whale shark also filter feeds. The whale shark is 18-33 feet.
