Do fish need to chew their food?

  • Something I have always wondered and I have never had it answered even though I have had fish myself and I have observed when I have fed them to see if I can find an answer to my question but I have not been able to.

    Do fish chew their food?

    Depending on the kind of fish you have will depend on the kind of food you give them and whilst it will more than likely go soft in the water, I do wonder if maybe they have a way to chew it if they need to.

  • I've always wondered the same thing! I've had fish before and I've noticed that they don't seem to chew their food like we do. It's interesting to think about whether or not they actually need to chew. I've observed my fish when I feed them, and it seems like they just gulp down the food without any chewing action. But then again, different fish have different diets, so maybe some fish do chew their food in their own way. It's a mystery that I still haven't been able to solve.
