Deep below the surface of Earth's rivers, lakes, and oceans, there exists an underwater world where more than 30,000 species of fish spend their lives swimming and searching for food. Readers will discover how fish can breathe underwater, why their bodies are perfectly suited for swimming, and how they reproduce. They will also find out why some fish thrive at the lowest depths of the ocean while others are right at home in shallow lakes.
