No, the blue marlin is not the fastest swimmer in the world. The fastest swimmer is the sailfish.
There is no World record for 25m as this is not an event that competitive swimmers actually compete in
It is Micheal Phelps.The world's fastest swimmer would have to be Michael Phelps because he holds 30 ( i think) world records in swimming.Breaking 37 world records, Michael Phelps is generally considered the greatest swimmer of all time.Currently (2009), France's Frederick Bousquet holds the 50m freestyle record at 20.94 seconds.

He can do a 50 meter free in under 21 seconds. That's about 4-5 miles per hours if consistant.
There IS NOT a 25 meter freestyle world record. Although there are FINA recognised events in short course (25 meter) pools, the 25 meter sprint is not a FINA recognised event. As a result of this, there is no official record for the 25 meter freestyle event.
That was swimmer Michael Phelps of the United States who set a world record, or was part of a relay team that set a world record, in 7 of the 8 events he won. Those events that Phelps won gold and set world records in were the 400 meter individual medlay, 4x100 freestyle relay, 200 meter freestyle, 200 meter butterfly, 4x200 meter freestyle relay, 200 meter individual medlay, and the 4x100 meter medlay relay. The only event that he did not set a world record in was the 100 meter butterfly and he did set an Olympic record in winning gold in that event.
Of the 13 men's swimming events at the 1976 Summer Games in Montreal, new world records were set in 12 of them: 100 meter freestyle, 200 meter freestyle, 400 meter freestyle, 1500 meter freestyle, 4x200 meter freestyle relay, 100 meter breaststroke, 200 meter breaststroke, 200 meter butterfly, 100 meter backstroke, 200 meter backstroke, 400 meter individual medley, 4x100 meter medley relay. The only event where a world record was not set was the 100 meter butterfly.
If we do this under the same contents as running, such as saying the Usain Bolt is the fastest man on land because he holds the world record in the 100 meter, considered to be the fastest track event. If we follow that rule then currently the fastest person ever would be France's Frederick Bousquet. He currently holds the world record in the 50 meter freestyle, considered to be the fastest event in the pool. Another swimmer that is very close to him would be Brazil's Ceasar Cielo, he was the previous record holder until Bousquet broke it. If you would like to look at it as the fastest all around swimmer than it would have to be Michael Phelps or Mark Spitz. These two have set world records in more events than anyone else with spits i believe having 5 (when he was swimming) and Phelps at one point (Prior to him not swimming many of his best events at the World Championships) held 8. Both of those include relays
In the Beijing Olympics, French swimmer Alain Bernard broke the world record of the 100m freestyle in the men's division with a time of 46.9seconds
