      Using 'Fish' as Singular and Plural
      Thursday March 25th 2021
      Question
      In what ways is the word 'fish' used as singular and plural? — Cole, Nigeria
      Answer

      The plural form of 'fish' is the same as the singular form when you are talking about one kind of fish.

      • I have one fish in my fishtank.
      • I have two fish in my fish tank.
      • I got a new fish for my birthday.
      • I have several fish now.

       

      When you are talking about more than one kind or species of fish, both 'fish' and 'fishes' are ok to use.

      • There are many different fishes in our pond. [=There are many kinds of fish in our pond.]
      • These three tropical fish have unique coloring.
      • She studies all the fishes of the sea.

       

      'Fish' is also used as a noncount noun when talking about the meat of a fish eaten as food.

      • I had fish for dinner.
      • Is there fish in the casserole?

       

      I hope this helps.
