Best Answer

Fish have no eyelids to blink, their eyes are already moist, because they live in water. Since they have no eyelids, many people mistakenly think that fish do not sleep. Fish do sleep, they just stay very still in a quiet corner. Scientists believe they enter a rest state. See link below..
