The most intelligent fish in the ocean are Manta Rays. Manta rays have the highest brain-to-body-size ratio of any cold-blooded animal, indicating excellent cognitive capability, which is also shown by dolphins, primates, and elephants.
Giant manta rays have been recorded inspecting their reflections in a way that implies they are aware of themselves. The mirror test, which is frequently regarded as a preliminary test of self-awareness, has only been passed by a few species, mostly by primates.
