You play the fish Mara in the racing game. She is an Orange Roughy.

The Orange Roughy is a deep sea fish which got its name because of its bright orange coloration and rough scales. As many other deep-sea fish, Orange Roughy are long lived. Studies show that they may commonly live more than 100 years. The long life-time implies that they are late to mature (23 – 40 years of age), that they grow slowly. They also have a low reproductive rate and may spawn irregularly. While deep-sea fish species have these life history tendencies, researchers believe that Orange Roughy are the extreme low end of the productivity and high end of the longevity scales.
