Who wouldn’t want to live in a world where your best friend was a lovable fish? Well, a Japanese diver who’s been friends with his fishy companion for the last 25 years, gets to live this fantasy on a daily basis; most human friendships don’t last that long.

Hiroyuki Arakawa has long been the caretaker for an underwater Shinto shrine – located beneath Japan’s Tateyama Bay. After decades of taking care of the numerous marine creatures, Arakawa “fell in friendship” with a lovable Asian Sheepshead Wrasse named Yoriko. The one of a kind friendship was captured on video and shows Arakawa greeting his friend with a kiss.

Don’t believe this friendship is the real deal? According to a recent study, scientists found that fish have the ability to recognise human faces: “Scientists presented the fish with two images of human faces and trained them to choose one by spitting their jets at that picture,” Dr Cait Newport from Oxford University told CNN. This not only makes the friendship between Hiroyuki and Yoriko even more special but gives us hope that our Goldfish may actually recognise us – yeah for science!
