Perhaps I'm wrong, but I always thought that "Fishes" was an antiquated usage, like "all ye fishes of the sea". Isn't fish a sheep- plural? Lithoderm (talk) 14:34, 10 October 2008 (UTC)

I have to agree. Fish is the plural of fish. -mattbuck (Talk) 18:18, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
Fish is the plural form. But I guess in this case it's ok since where talking about groups of fish (Fishes is a word). Still, we don't have "Peoples" or "Monies". Rocket000 (talk) 01:55, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
Be bold and move it to Fish, leaving a redirect? -mattbuck (Talk) 02:11, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
I would support that, although I think I remember some discussion a long time ago about it somewhere but I couldn't find it... maybe it was en.wp. There's this comment (deleted page) but that may no longer be relevant. Some subcategories would need to be changed too. If you're up for it, maybe a CFD (at least that's the safe route)?

Well, if no longer relevant it seems better IMO to just move them all and leave redirects. A DR will take forever to process. Best to be bold I think. -mattbuck (Talk) 03:35, 24 March 2009 (UTC)
