You’re probably heard of the fact that fish grow larger, depending on the size of the fish tank. Well, this holds true when it comes to the body of water. You usually don’t see a 30 foot fish swimming down the river. Instead, the size of the fish adjusts to the size of the body of water.

This isn’t the case when it comes to fresh water, as fewer predators are available in the fresh water of these lakes.
