These intelligent fish are primarily found in Loch Eadaigh, located on the border of Darokin and Alfheim. They often are fast-talkers and a bit on the saucy side. Talking fish will often bargain for their lives if caught, though they are crafty and will look to double cross anyone they have a deal with.
Talking fish speak Sylvan and Common. Some may also speak Aquan, Fairy, and other local languages.

Talking fish avoid combat unless unable to flee. They will use their spells to try to open up an escape path, and bite only as a last resort.

Spells-like Abilities (Sp): 1/day: air breathing (variant of water breathing), charm person, levitate, mirror image, polymorph, ventriloquism. Caster Level 6th, Charisma based.

Aquatic Subtype: These creatures always have swim speeds and thus can move in water without making Swim checks. An aquatic creature can breathe underwater. It cannot also breathe air unless it has the amphibious special quality.
