Sharks, Eels, Sturgeon...

Fish have more recognized species than any other vertebrate and their habitats range from the smallest freshwater streams to the deepest seafloor canyons. They grow from a fraction of an inch to 50 feet and live anywhere from the artic waters to the tropics. Fish skeletons can either be cartilaginous or bony, a category that includes the vast majority of fish.
