It's a flying fish tale worthy of Finding Nemo.
But in a bizarre twist, this unusual story of three North Vancouver women trying to reunite an exotic fish with its owner started on land - with a fish that fell out of a tree.
A quick check showed the mystery fish was probably a cichlid - an aquarium fish native to South and Central America and usually kept in indoor aquariums. Wilkinson and Taylor took it to a local pet store and had its identity as a Midas cichlid confirmed - described online as a "rather robust fish."
