WTG on the wide variety. I heard of those things flying past fishermens heads in Mexico.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Needlefish

Danger to Humans
Needlefish, like all ray-finned beloniforms, are capable of making short jumps out of the water at up to 38 mph. Since needlefish swim near the surface, they often leap over the decks of shallow boats rather than going around. This jumping activity is greatly excited by artificial light at night; night fisherman and divers in areas across the Pacific Ocean have been "attacked" by schools of suddenly excited needlefish diving across the water towards the light source at high speed. Their sharp beak is capable of inflicting deep puncture wounds, often breaking off inside the victim in the process. For many traditional Pacific Islander communities, who primarily fish on reefs from low boats, needlefish represent an even greater risk of injury than sharks .[5]

Two historical deaths have been attributed to needlefish. The first was in 1977 when a 10-year-old Hawai'ian boy, night fishing with his father at Hanamaulu Bay, Kaua'i, was killed when a 3-4 foot long needlefish jumped from the water and pierced his eye and brain.[6] The second was a 16-year-old Vietnamese boy, stabbed through the heart by the six-inch spike of a needlefish in 2007 while night diving for sea cucumbers near Halong Bay.
