Chapter 39: The Fish
The study of fish is called Ichthyology. Does this mean that fish are 'icky'? Not at all! Fish come in many varieties including the skeletal fish (Osteichthyes), cartilaginous fish (Chondrichthyes), and jawless fish (Agnatha). More is being learned about fish everyday, in fact approximately 250 new species are officially found each year and there are more fish species than the COMBINED total of all other vertebrates! This includes mammals, amphibians, reptiles and birds! Wow! And they taste good too! So join in on this weeklong study of the mighty fish!
