'Flying fish seen at sea fourteen days out of the Canaries by Girolamo Benzoni's sailing ship going to the New World.The text describes flying fish which flew out of the water to escape predators below only to be caught by birds above. It also discusses dolphins or fish which have a beak like a goose and a hole on top for breathing.
