Ask Tony & Tucker: fish flake scales

Posted: Updated:

Our Ask Tony and Tucker question comes from Rob Jones from southern Maryland. He sent his question to us via video. He asked, "I was eating fish tonight for dinner and when I was eating it I noticed the flesh of the fish was breaking off in flakes. What I want to know is... when the fish is alive, is the flesh in layers like that on purpose, does it help it swim better, or is there another purpose for it?... Or is it even in layers like that when it's alive? So help me out, thanks."
