The fish

The first animal to populate the Earth, 530 million years ago, was a fish.
The oceans have created for humans a disturbing universe, populated by strange and monstrous beings. Over the centuries, fish inspired many artists whith a considerable quantity of work produced (paintings, engravings, sculptures, mosaics, tapestries, etc.).
Nowadays however, the fish remains little represented in Notaphily.

The group of “fish” is a group without phylogenetic significance in the new classification.
The 28,000 existing species do not form a single clade. Lampreys and Hagfish are vertebrates that form a clade different from that of fish called the Cyclostomata clade.
The groups belonging to the fish are as follows:
Chondrichthyans (with cartilage), Osteichthyans (with bony ray fins), Actinistians and Lungfish with presence of lungs.
Fish swim from mountain springs to the bottom of the ocean.
