Ichthyology

All things Fishy

From Wikepedia:

Ichthyology (from Greek: ἰχθυ, ikhthu, “fish”; and λόγος, logos, “knowledge”) is the branch of zoology devoted to the study of fish. This includes skeletal fish (Osteichthyes), cartilaginous fish (Chondrichthyes), and jawless fish (Agnatha). At least 30,700 fish species have been described, comprising a majority of vertebrates. While a majority of species have probably been discovered and described, approximately 250 new species are officially described by science each year.The practice of ichthyology is associated with marine biology and limnology.
