Best Answer

The correct answer is yes, fish can get sunburned, but it is unusual unless there is something about their environment that does not allow them to seek deeper water or some kind of shelter. Sunburned fish have been known to occur in aquaculture when rearing systems were not properly designed to account for sun exposure.
