Just guessing here but I would think it would run......very.......slowly.
And eventually you would probably damage the motor.

You will draw too much current from your battery source for the wire gauge run to the motor, at the very least you will blow a fuse. If the wiring supports the extra current flow, the motor may hum or run slowly from lack of power. Worst case the extra current will heat things up and create a fire hazard.

Ditto what others have said. If it runs at all, it will run very slowly. It certainly will not pump well IF it runs. Even if it doesn't run it will draw power. Run or not, I would expect the motor to eventually overheat.

As others have posted, it will work very poorly or not at all.

If you're really in love with the pump you can take it to an electric motor shop and see if they can rewind it for 12 volts. It could be expensive. Otherwisw, just buy a 12 volt pump.
