With tens of thousands of different species, fish and crustacean behaviors, habits and abilities vary wildly.  Typically, fish can be defined as cold-blooded, aquatic vertebrates.  They usually have streamlined bodies, breathe underwater through the use of gills, have two sets of paired fins, have a jaw and have skin that is covered with scales.   Fish have an important role in many cultures, including ours, ranging from being seen as religious symbols to subjects of books and popular movies.

Most live in either fresh water or marine environments, but a few have adapted to life on land, such as terrestrial crabs.
