WHY AREN'T FISH ELECTROCUTED DURING LIGHTNING STORMS?

Its a fact of nature & science both that why aren't fish electrocuted during lightning storms?


Hello friends, I come again with a new blog.This time this is not an invention, it is a fact about "Why aren't fish electrocuted during lightning storms?". Some of you already know about this but I'm requesting you to read this completely.

We're never thought to use a hairdryer in the bathtub because we will die due to electric shock.So why don't lighting storms kill fish & other animals in the sea?What happens to them?Here you will get reasons behind this unexpectable cause.Before explaining this, let us know something about Lightning storms.

Lightning storms over ocean

WHAT IS LIGHTNING STORMS?

Lightning is a rapid discharge of electrical energy in the atmosphere whose each spark has 5 miles in length, containing 100 million volts of electricity and reach temperature hotter than the surface of the sun.Lightning strikes are not only dangerous, it can be deadly.Every year, millions of lightning flashes fill our skies.each one of them has potential to cause devastation. 

Now let us talk about the above-stated question.
After many inspections, researchers get few reasons behind this element.The basic reason is that the lightning just doesn't strike the ocean that much.In 2014, the Journal of Geophysical Research published a map that amazed five years of global lightning strike data taken from two different weather satellites.It showed that lightning strikes over land 10 times more often than it does over oceans.

According to the NASA Earth Observatory, this makes sense in that of the way lightning forms.Solid earth absorbs sunlight & heats faster than water does.That heat causes more transmission & instability in the atmosphere which in turn causes more thunder & lightning producing storms.

Now you think that you know that lightning storms do strike the water level of the oceans.So, Why I tell you that lightning storms don't strike the ocean?.I agree that lightning does strike the water level of the ocean but it happens only sometimes.Then, Why doesn't that kill the fish of the oceans?Physics has the answer to this question.we know that like metal, water is a good conductor, so it restores the electric current to travel over its surface rather than inquire underneath, the same way a Faraday cage protects its contents from harmful shocks.Lightning storms will kill fish if they are close enough to the surface of oceans.

Some fish are sensitive to temperature, they would die with little much currents.So they start watching hunters & predators when the sky getting darkens due to storms, so that, they can make get shelter.
