How Fast Can Fish Swim?

How do fish swim

Fish swim by flexing their bodies and tail back and forth. Fish stretch or expand their muscles on one side of their body, while relaxing the muscles on the other side. This motion moves them forward through the water.
Nothing gets the adrenaline going faster than watching your backing rip off your spool with ungodly rapidity. Or closing your eyes and listening to the sound or your drag melting. I did some quick searches on fish speeds, to get an idea of the fastest fish.
