List of fish common names that end in -fish

By spitemim, 2021-12-28

The following is a list of common fish names that end in the suffix -fish. We all have our reasons for looking this up, and I thought it was important to put it on the internet. Maybe you want to write a chess engine and you think the trend of naming chess engines after fish species that end in -fish is neat (e.g: Stockfish, Sunfish, etc.) Maybe you want to rhyme something with the word “fish”. I don’t know, and I don’t care.

This list was scraped from the Wikipedia page entitled List of fish common names using lynx -dump and some well-crafted regular expressions. You can click on a name to (hopefully) visit its Wikipedia page.
