in reply to match last element instead of first??

Just as you ask, split the line. (assuming the separator is fixed).
$ perl -le '$line = shift; @fish = split /\s*fish\s*/, $line; print fo +r @fish' 'One fish two fish red fish blue fish' One two red blue
You may compare between regex and split solutions, if you like.
