I was only able to get 5 out of 10 correct. I knew tuna, trout, flounder, salmon and snapper. The rest were too hard for me. This was fun to do, though!! Keep 'em coming!!

LTSA fun, Peppa. It really teased MY brain!!!
kistin14Aus*
May 13, 2006

This was really hard, and really boring! You should come up with easier, and funner ones!
iteachkidsAus*
May 13, 2006

... c'mon, kistin. Easier isn't BETTER. Where's the growth in that???
Most of us are here to learn stuff and to exercise our brains!!!

May 13, 2006

I knew right away there was something fishy about this puzzle, and the catch was a challenge.

My hubby would have loved this one. And because of him, I got most of them.
vlermaAus*
May 13, 2006

feste, I loved your quip! peppa as usual you rock. Loved it. I got seven right and probably would have gotten more if I had been a little more patient. Great job!

May 13, 2006

my friend and i went on wikipedia and looked at all the fish names to solve the final 3 clues. Wow, there are alot of fish names. Also my friend added an extra garbage name at the end of my list to confuse me. And it worked. There aren't any fish with the letters WOMCN!

GIVE ME A CHALLENGE, THIS IS SUPPOSED 2 B A "BRAIN" TEASER.
GebbieRoseAus*
May 13, 2006

This was a challenge! I floundered over 8 & 10, until I found a website that listed species of fish (thank you, G--gle). I agree - if it's too easy, it's not fun. Gotta have that rush from solving a tricky puzzle.
tdbrsun*
May 14, 2006

I got the fish I knew. It was fun Thanks.
scallioAus*
May 17, 2006

Good one. I didn't get all- heck, I hadn't even heard of some of these, but thanks for making us using our noggens.

What the heck is a porgy?

I got all but the last one. Never heard of a pompano. Anyone know what/where a pompano is?
auntiesisAus*
May 13, 2007

I didn't get pompano, but the rest I knew. Just goes to show you how much stuff you never use is wandering around in your brain. I always marvel at what trivia is stored in there. Keep up the good work.

I love to eat fish, but I didn't get notta one, but it was fun to try!
SmeraldinaAus*
May 13, 2007

Just challenging enough to be really a lot of fun. I didn't know all of the fish, but I had great fun figuring out the ones I did. Thanks!

Something fishy about this teaser.
auntiesisAus*
Jun 15, 2010

Here I am, Gayle. Good quiz, kinda easy because I love fish, although I wouldn't eat some of the ones in this teaser.
Babe*

Unless you know a lot about fish you really need more bait to hook this one!
cutebugAus**
Jun 15, 2013

I don't fish, I don't eat fish, so I don't know most fish species.
HABS2933Aca*

Was able to get 1-7 without even looking at the letter pool. I got 8 by going back and figuring out what letters I had left. 9 and 10 stumped me.
Fun puzzle, even if a tad on the easy side. I don't eat fish at all, but hubby likes to fish and my family and most of my friends are Newfies, so maybe some of that rubbed off.
gaylewolfAus*
Jun 15, 2013

I LOVED this quiz - by a process of elimination, I was able to get all of them. I love fish and other seafood but my favorite is salmon, which I have often. I'm beginning to swim upstream now. I'd like more quizzes like this one. Thanks!
