The species, also known commonly as a clown featherback fish, occurs in Thailand, Lao PDR, Viet Nam, and Cambodia. It has been introduced to Myanmar and the Philippines for aquaculture. Juveniles are popular in the aquarium trade and large fish are popular for public aquaria. In some parts of the Philippines, its introduction is wreaking havoc on the local fishing industry

Flying fish can make powerful, self-propelled leaps out of water into air, where their long, wing-like fins enable gliding flight for considerable distances above the water's surface. This uncommon ability is a natural defense mechanism to evade predators

The Atlantic Goliath Grouper, commonly known as the jewfish, is a large saltwater fish of the grouper family found primarily in shallow tropical waters among coral and artificial reefs at depths from 5 to 50 m (16 to 164 ft). They may reach extremely large sizes, growing to lengths of up to 3 m (10 ft) and can weigh as much as 360 kg (790 lb). Since 1990, the fishery has been closed to harvest throughout the southeast region of the United States

The lined seahorse lives in the Atlantic Ocean as far north as Canada and as far south as the Caribbean, Mexico, and Venezuela. It swims in an erect position and uses its dorsal and pectoral fins for guidance while swimming. Lined seahorses feed mainly on minute crustaceans and brine shrimp, which they suck in through their snout.

This fish is used for aquaculture throughout Asia, particularly in China and Vietnam. Silver carp were imported to North America in the 1970s to control algae growth in aquaculture and municipal wastewater treatment facilities. They escaped from captivity soon after their importation. They are considered a highly invasive species

The Atlantic salmon is an anadromous fish, typically spending 2-3 years in freshwater, migrating to the ocean where it also spends 2-3 years, and then returning to its natal river to spawn. It originally occurred in every country with rivers flowing in to the North Atlantic Ocean and the Baltic Sea and is thus native to the region. Today, the species distribution has decreased in its southern range on both sides of the Atlantic
