At the Seaside Aquarium, dozens of fish were born from what many would consider quite an unlikely source: a male fish. Pipefish are long, rounded creatures related to the sea horse, that have an unusual life process. The female pipefish has the eggs originally, but transfers them to the male. He fertilizes them, and then he is the one responsible during the remaining gestation period. The aquariumâ€™s pregnant male has so far given birth to at least 25 baby fish, which look like tiny slivers when theyâ€™re born. The baby fish, within view of aquarium visitors now, are around half an inch in length and about as wide as a blade of grass.
