First warm blooded fish[edit]

An amazing fish has been found which can live in depths of oceans and is warm blooded. It circulates the blood throughout its body and can live in depth. Read more complete information here:

The opah has been confirmed as a truly endothermic fish[1]. It makes sense to link to opah with a brief explanation of this in the Homeothermy section.

Taxobox vs infobox[edit]

Since "fish" isn't a taxonomic term, should the taxobox be replaced with an infobox?   User:Dunkleosteus77 |push to talk  17:58, 11 June 2016 (UTC)

The article doesn't use a taxobox, it uses paraphyletic group --Epipelagic (talk) 21:57, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Not a great opening sentence.[edit]

A fish is any member of a group of organisms that consist of all gill-bearing aquatic craniate animals that lack limbs with digits. To be honest, this is not a great sentence with which to start the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 109.148.9.204 (talk) 22:04, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

Well please suggest one you consider is better. DrChrissy (talk) 22:30, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
Yes, any improvements you suggest will be welcomed. The challenge is to explain in the lead sentence what a fish is in a way that balances accuracy with avoiding unnecessary jargon. The existing lead could be shortened to the slightly simpler and slightly less precise, "Fish are the gill-bearing aquatic craniate animals that lack limbs with digits".--Epipelagic (talk) 01:11, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
I can't be sure what the above commenter's problem with the opening sentence was, but I think this sentence is better: "A fish is any gill-bearing acquatic craniate animal that lacks limbs with digits". "Any member of a group consisting of all animals with these properties" is a really clunky way of saying "any animal these properties" 130.225.188.33 (talk) 13:53, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
Okay, I've made the change. --Epipelagic (talk) 16:55, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

Sensory organ[edit]

Hi,
Under "Sensory organs" it is mentioned that e.g. sharks can spot e/m fields with a special organ. Why not either mention the organ by name or link to its page?

Also, is this article protected? Couldn't see any "edit" tab. If so, sorry to disturb :)

Pic deleted[edit]

I have added a picture of fish Market of bengali people. But without giving any reason this pic was removed. My question is why? Here I'm posting the pic :
