Bream is a general term for a number of species of freshwater and marine fish, mainly, but not exhaustively, drawn from the genera Abramis (e.g. A. brama, the carp bream), Acanthopagrus, Argyrops, Blicca, Brama, Etelis, Gymnocranius, Lethrinus, Nemipterus, Rhabdosargus and Scolopsis. Although species from all of these genera are called "bream", the term does not imply a degree of relatedness between these species, such as a family or other higher taxon would.
