Description
Description

Fish are aquatic vertebrates that inhabit oceans, rivers, lakes, and ponds across the globe. Characterized by gills, fins, and often scales, they're an incredibly diverse group, ranging from tiny gobies to massive sharks. Fish evolved around 530 million years ago during the Cambrian explosion, giving rise to over 33,000 known species today. They occupy a range of ecological niches, from deep-sea trenches to fast-flowing streams, playing crucial roles in food webs. Fish have developed various adaptations, like electric organs in eels and bioluminescence in deep-sea species. Their life cycles, behaviors, and reproduction strategies are as varied as their habitats, making them a fascinating and integral part of Earth's biodiversity.

Anatomy
Anatomy

Fish possess streamlined bodies adapted for aquatic life. They breathe through gills, extracting oxygen from water. Most have scales providing protection and a slimy coating reducing friction. Fins enable movement; the tail fin propels, while others stabilize and steer. Many fish are cold-blooded, their body temperature fluctuating with their environment. They lack vocal cords but can communicate through sounds generated by vibrating muscles or bones. Vision varies widely, with some having excellent sight, while others are blind, relying on enhanced senses like taste or electroreception. Lateral lines detect vibrations, aiding in navigation and hunting. Internal anatomy includes a swim bladder for buoyancy control.

Human Interaction
Human Interaction

Humans and fish have a multifaceted relationship stretching back millennia. Initially, fish were a vital food source for ancient civilizations, a role they continue to fulfill today. Recreational fishing has evolved into a popular pastime, while fishkeeping is a common hobby, showcasing the fascination with aquatic life. In pop culture, fish have featured in tales from "The Old Man and the Sea" to "Finding Nemo."

However, overfishing, pollution, and habitat destruction have prompted conservation efforts. Sustainable fishing practices, marine protected areas, and restoration projects aim to balance human needs with the preservation of fish populations and their ecosystems.

Common Questions
Common Questions
What do fish eat?

The diet of fish is very diverse as the number of fish species is very large. Some fish are carnivores, while other species of fish are herbivores or omnivores. Fish generally eat small organisms, algae, and sometimes can even eat other fish. The food that fish eat depends on their species, size, and environment.

How long do fish live?

The lifespan of a fish usually depends on the species. A fish may live anywhere between a year to 200 years – it all depends on the species of fish. The lifespan of a fish typically depends on their size, species, and whether they live in the wild or captivity.

How do fish sleep?

Fish do not sleep in the same form and manner that land mammals sleep. Fish sleep by reducing their activity and metabolism while remaining alert to any potential danger. While sleeping some fish float in place, in a secure spot within the mud, or find a nest. During sleep, fish perform restorative functions.

Apache Trout (Oncorhynchus apache)
Scale illustration of an average Apache Trout compared to a human and other freshwater fish species

The Apache Trout (Oncorhynchus apache) is native to Arizona in the streams of the White Mountain. This freshwater fish is easy to identify thanks to the medium-sized dark spots evenly spaced onto the dorsal side and tail fin and extending below the lateral line except for the belly. The back and top of its head is dark olive, but below the lower jaw are the yellow and gold color marks. The belly as well takes on a golden color. A small black spot may be seen on each side of the pupil. This makes each pupil appear to have a black stripe running from side to side.

Apache Trout have a total length between 6”-16” (15-41 cm) and body height of 1.2”-3.1” (3-8 cm). The typical weight of the Apache Trout is in the range of .44-6 lb (.2-2.7 kg). The maximum body length of the Apache trout is 24” (61 cm) with a height of 5.1” (13 cm). Apache Trout have lifespans between 3-6 years.

Common Hogfish (Lachnolaimus maximus)
Comparison illustration of the size of a Common Hogfish to other saltwater fish

The Common Hogfish, also known scientifically as Lachnolaimus maximus, earned its name “hogfish,” from its tendency to root around in sand in order to find food. The Common Hogfish, when compared to other species of wrasse, is uncharacteristically flat and oval shaped with red irises that change color over the course of its life. The Common Hogfish lives in groups of females led by an alpha male. Hogfish start their lives as females and once they have grown to a certain size, they change to males. The Common Hogfish can usually be found in open bottoms or coral reefs from Bermuda and North Carolina through the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean.

The  Common Hogfish is also called pez perro, boquinete, or doncella de pluma. This fish is carnivorous, sequential hermaphrodite, and long-lived. Males and females are easy to differentiate. Females and juveniles are usually pale gray, reddish-brown, or brown but paler on the underside with no distinctive marks. Males have deep dark bands from the snout to the first dorsal spine. You may also see a prominent black spot behind the pectoral fin. All hogfish have their dorsal fin made of three to four long dorsal spines and a series of shorter dorsal spines.



Common Hogfish have a total length between 10”-36” (25.4-91.4 cm) and body height of 3.5”-12.6” (9-32 cm). The typical weight of the Common Hogfish is in the range of 11-22 lb (5-10 kg). Common Hogfish have lifespans between 8-11 years.

American Eel (Anguilla rostrata)
Scale illustration of an average American Eel compared to a human and other eel species

You may think it is a snake because of the narrow snake-like body, however, the American eel (Anguilla rostrata) is no snake as it lacks a tail but possesses a continuous tail fin (joined dorsal, caudal, and tail fin). As a catadromous fish, life for the American eel begins offshore and ends offshore after spawning. The fish fit into the family Anguillidae, choosing the fresh and brackish water of the Eastern coast of North America. This nocturnal scavenger loves to hole up in mud and gravel during the day and is separated from other eels by heavy lips, longer lower jaw, absent pelvic fins, and a long dorsal fin starting at its middle to its posterior.

American Eels have a total length between 20”-40” (51-102 cm) and body height of 1.2”-2.4” (3-6 cm). The typical weight of the American Eel is in the range of 13-17 lb (6-7.7 kg). American Eels have lifespans between 15-40 years.

Smallmouth Bass

The Smallmouth Bass (Micropterus dolomieu) are popular game fish of the family Centrarchidae that love the freshwater bodies of the warm zones of North America. It is also called bronzeback, brownbass, bareback bass, bronze bass, and smallie. Females are larger than males with the fish’s color, shape, and weight being influenced by their habitats.

They love clean water free of pollution, with males creating the nest during breeding and guarding the eggs. The Smallmouth Bass is separated from the largemouth bass by its lower jaw, which does not extend past the edge of its eyes and lines that fade with age.

Smallmouth Basss have a total length between 10”-27” (25-69 cm), body height of 2.5”-6.5” (6.4-16.5 cm), and an overall weight in the range of .8-12 lb (.4-5.4 kg). The typical lifespan of the Smallmouth Bass is 5-15 years.

Bull Trout
Measured comparison illustration of the size of a Bull Trout to a typical person

The Bull Trout (Salvelinus confluentus) are threatened species native to freshwater lakes, rivers, reservoirs, and oceans of Northwestern America. They belong to the family Salmonidae with migratory species being larger than sedentary species living in streams. They are highly identified by salmon-colored spots of yellow or orange on their backs and fins having white leading edges.

Bull Trout are highly sensitive to water temperature, salinity, and quality which are a threat to their existence. The fish can also interbreed with the brook trout in areas introduced. Females dig nests in the gravel during spawning. Bull Trout is highly popular as a cold-water game fish.

Bull Trout have a total length between 24”-34” (61-86 cm), body height of 5”-7” (12.7-17.8 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 3-9 lb (1.4-4 kg). The typical lifespan of the Bull Trout is 5-12 years.
