Types of Fish   

1     Fish live and breathe in water. They have gills to breathe. They have fins and a streamlined body suitable for swimming. And they have scales for protection. Fish are vertebrates - animals with a backbone. Mammals (such as monkeys, horses, cats), reptiles (such as lizards, snakes), amphibians (such as frogs and toads), and birds also have backbones, and they are all vertebrates.
 
2     There are over 25,000 different types of fish in the world. There are more fish than the combined total of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds! Fish can be found in almost every type of underwater environment. For example, the Antarctic icefish can survive in water below the freezing point (32 degrees Fahrenheit). Their blood contains special anti-freeze chemicals to prevent their bodies from freezing. Sharks, salmon, electric eels, and seahorses are other examples of fish.
 
3     Fish can be divided into three groups: jawless fish, cartilaginous (pronounced "KAR-ti-LAJ-i-nus") fish, and bony fish. Both cartilaginous and bony fish have jaws.
