Fish

What’s the best way to ensure you are not in competition with someone else for food and shelter? Be completely different from one another so you can eat different foods! That’s what marine fish specialise in – diversity. Fish all belong to the classification of animals which have a skeleton (known as the phylum Chordata to be specific!). Fish which have a hard, bony skeleton (just like ours) are called teleosts.
