A name loosely applied in popular usage to many animals of diverse characteristics, living in the water.
An oviparous, vertebrate animal usually having fins and a covering scales or plates. It breathes by means of gills, and lives almost entirely in the water. See Pisces.
The twelfth sign of the zodiac; Pisces.
Any of numerous cold-blooded aquatic vertebrates of the superclass Pisces, characteristically having fins, gills, and a streamlined body.
Group of vertebrate animals that inhabit aquatic habitats.
(1) Any vertebrate animal provided with gills throughout life and cold-blooded, the limbs being modified into fins. (2) Fish are defined as: shellfish, crustaceans, marine animals, the eggs, spawn, spat and juvenile stages of fish, shellfish, crustaceans, and marine animals. (Canada Fisheries Act, sec.31.5)
includes finfish, shellfish, crustaceans and molluscs in any stage of life, including eggs.
All fish are broken down into two very broad categories - fish and shellfish. In the most basic terms, fish are equipped with fins, backbones and gills, while shellfish have shells of one form or another. Fish without shells are separated into two groups - freshwater fish and saltwater fish. Because salt water provides more buoyancy than fresh water, saltwater fish - such as cod, flounder and tuna - can afford to have thicker bones. Freshwater fish - like catfish, perch and trout - can`t be weighted with a heavy skeletal framework. Instead, their structure is based on hundreds of minuscule bones, a source of frustration to many diners.

A cold-blooded, limbless, vertebrate that lives wholly in water and has fins, internal gills, and skin with a glandular secretion that decreases friction.
A fish is a cold-blooded animal that has a backbone and lives in water and breathes by means of gills. It normally has two pairs of fins in place of arms and legs, as well as several other fins. Many fish are covered with scales. All fish hatch from eggs. Usually the females and males release the eggs and the milt (fish sperm) into the water. When they meet, the eggs are fertilized. Eggs may be released in long, sticky strings that cling to rocks or seaweed, or they may float on the surface, becoming part of the plankton. Many species simply dig a depression on the bottom of a lake and deposit the eggs there. Some eggs are covered with oddly shaped leathery cases . Sometimes the eggs are fertilized in the female's body and hatch there.

Fish are scaly, cold-blooded animals with fins that get their oxygen from the water using gills. Primitive fish evolved during the Ordovician Period (505 to 438 million years ago), long before the whales appeared.
Any species of animal living in water, including its eggs or roe.
Fish are aquatic vertebrates that are typically cold-blooded; covered with scales, and equipped with two sets of paired fins and several unpaired fins. Fish are abundant in the sea and in fresh water, with species being known from mountain streams (e.g., char and gudgeon) as well as in the deepest depths of the ocean (e.g., gulpers and anglerfish). They are of tremendous importance as food for people around the world, either collected from the wild (see fishing) or farmed in much the same way as cattle or chickens (see aquaculture).
