News stories about fish often focus either on large fish like sharks, or on tasty seafood. So it might come as a surprise that more than half of the fish on coral reefs are tiny and well camouflaged. This naturally makes them hard to find, and as a result we know very little about these so-called "cryptic" species.

Learning how to cook fish at home can be incredibly intimidating. There are a lot of mistakes you can make, but we think the best way to nail it every time is to let the oven do all the work. That's why slow-roasting is our go-to technique for weeknight fish, and, in spite of its name, it only takes about 30 minutes ...
But any mild white fish will work for today's recipe, Cod with Pomegranate and Zucchini en Papillote.

Marine scientists from the National University of Ireland (NUI) in Galway found the plastic bits in 73 percent of 233 deep-sea fish collected from the Northwest Atlantic Ocean--one of the highest ...

It's long been thought that the very rare animals that reproduce asexually--only about one in 1,000 of all living vertebrate species--are at an evolutionary disadvantage compared with their sexually reproducing counterparts. But that doesn't hold true for the Amazon molly, an all-female fish species that has ...
In the second episode of Eater's Prime Time, hosts Ben Turley and Brent Young of New York's the Meat Hook are visiting their pal Will Horowitz at Harry & Ida's -- Horowitz's mini chain of sandwich shops with a strong Jewish deli inspiration.

How do fish end up in isolated bodies of water when they can't swim there themselves? For centuries, researchers have assumed that water birds transfer fish eggs into these waters - however, a systematic literature review by researchers at the University of Basel has shown that there is no evidence of this ...
fish farming is big business - the industry now produces about 100 million tonnes a year - and with salmon prices soaring, producers are turning to lasers, automation and artificial intelligence to boost production and cut costs.

Frederick, MD. - A Maryland woman said she found a worm in the fish that she bought from her local Costco store and posted the evidence of it on facebook, which has gone viral.

Off Australia's northwest coast, two neighboring coral reefs seem nearly identical. If you dove there, you'd find the same kinds of corals living in the same kind of water, with the same kinds of fish flitting through the polyps.

Male fish, "bucks," were caught with a wry "it's not a roe fish, but better than no fish," particularly if it was a trout. fish roe is, in the opinion of many, "good if you like it." But it's worth a try if you find yourself staring at a cooler full of fat female yellow perch. Carefully work the eggs out and prepare the same as ...

Verma took the "teach a man to fish" adage literally to found Agratam, a fish-farming social enterprise he started in 2012 while still a student. He has initiated what he calls a "Blue Revolution" to convert some 9,000 square kilometers (3,500 square miles) of waterlogged wasteland into productive fish-farming ...
Such a huge range could have stranded fish in tidal pools for a couple of weeks. Only the ones with fins strong enough to muscle themselves out would have been able to journey back into the ocean and survive. Fossil evidence for the earliest known land vertebrates comes from places that had such wide ...
Portland, Oregon--The evolution of land animals only happened once, some 400 million years ago.

Now, fish farms usually use a fish meal made up of small and bony fish for which there is no demand for human consumption. But the demand from their aquatic brothers and sisters is high. The World Bank estimates that 62 percent of fish for human consumption will come from aquaculture by 2030, ...

But a study on an Amazon fish has cast doubt on the rapidity of this decline. Despite thousands of years of asexual reproduction, the genomes of the Amazon molly ...
Some deep-sea skates -- cartilaginous fish related to rays and sharks -- use volcanic heat emitted at hydrothermal vents to incubate their eggs, according to a new study in the journal Scientific Reports.

To answer the question why this theory does not apply to the Amazon molly, the scientists studied their genome as well as that of two related fish species that reproduce sexually. The main insight: "We found little evidence of genetic degeneration in the Amazon molly, but rather a unique genetic variability ...
Knoxville, Tenn. (WATE) - Most people don't like getting bills in the mail, but one Knoxville family has been getting something worse.

The high number of dams built close to each other in the southeast significantly limits where fish can move throughout their lives, driving the risk of extinction for native fish in some areas, according to a study led by FIU ecologist John Kominoski. In the southwest, dams and climate change interact to drive ...
One species of deep-sea fish has chosen to incubate its eggs in a seemingly impossible place: the baking hot rocks of hydrothermal vents. Such vents are openings in the seabed that spew sulphurous gases and fluids from the bowels of the Earth out into the ocean. "This is the first time this egg-incubating ...
The Shape of Water is the story of a star-crossed affair between a mute woman and a fish man god-creature, a film that all but dares us to imagine the convoluted mechanism by which the latter's genitalia becomes external and, uh, able to do sex stuff with a human. It's also nominated for Best Picture now.
Not all fish swim. A few prefer to walk, including the little skate--a sandy-colored, wok-size pancake with a tail--that scissors its stubby hind fins back and forth to run along the northwestern Atlantic Ocean's sea floor in search of food. Now, a new study shows these ancient fish use the same neural wires to ...
The team tested the interaction of the robotic replica and live zebrafish under several different experimental conditions, but in all cases, the replica and the live fish were separated by a transparent panel. In preference tests, zebrafish showed greater affinity- and, importantly, no signs of anxiety or fear ...
It's all too easy to imagine a school of fish--or even a looser congregation, called a shoal--as a single organism. After all, its members streak past in tandem, and in dazzling patterns. Species such as the three-spined stickleback do seem to cooperate to achieve shared goals, such as sizing up predators.
In these first cold months of the new year, it feels good to switch gears, and this dish of fish in a fragrant miso broth with shiitake mushrooms and fresh spinach is a welcome step in the right direction.
