Branchial arches, or gill arches, are a series of bony "loops" present in fish, which support the gills.
A dorsal fin is a fin located on the back of most marine and freshwater vertebrates such as fishes, cetaceans (whales, dolphins, and porpoises), and the (extinct) ichthyosaur.
In biological classification, family (familia, plural familiae) is one of the eight major taxonomic ranks; it is classified between order and genus.
Fish are gill-bearing aquatic craniate animals that lack limbs with digits.
Fins are usually the most distinctive anatomical features of a fish.
Fish measurement is the measuring of the length of individual fish and of various parts of their anatomy.
Gill rakers in fish are bony or cartilaginous processes that project from the branchial arch (gill arch) and are involved with suspension feeding tiny prey.
Jacques Pellegrin (12 June 1873, Paris – 12 August 1944) was a French zoologist.
The lateral line is a system of sense organs found in aquatic vertebrates, used to detect movement, vibration, and pressure gradients in the surrounding water.
Marine biology is the scientific study of marine life, organisms in the sea.
In biological classification, the order (ordo) is.
Perciformes, also called the Percomorpha or Acanthopteri, are the most numerous order of vertebrates, containing about 41% of all bony fish.
Southern Africa is the southernmost region of the African continent, variably defined by geography or geopolitics, and including several countries.
The Sparidae are a family of fish in the order Perciformes, commonly called sea breams and porgies.
In biology, a species is the basic unit of classification and a taxonomic rank, as well as a unit of biodiversity, but it has proven difficult to find a satisfactory definition.
