When you think of creatures in the ocean, Fish are probably the first thing that comes to mind. Fish are some of the most populous and successful organisms in the ocean. They are fast, big, and perfectly suited for life in the sea. They are members of the phylum Chordata, meaning they have a backbone and spinal cord. Fish eat anything from algae and plankton to huge marine mammals.
Fish are some of the most diverse and populous organisms on our planet. Fish range in size from tiny fish we can barely see with our naked eye, to the giant whale shark, which dwarfs humans. Fish are spread throughout the oceans of our world and can be found in all seas except the Dead Sea (which is too salty to support any life). Fish can live anywhere from the hot tropical seas to the frigid arctic ocean. Fish have been found from the shallows of tide pools to the deepest reaches of the ocean humans have been able to explore.
I will cover some of the most beautiful, exotic, and bizarre species of fish over the course of this blog. Keep checking for more updates.
