Habitat, is simply, the location where a fish lives. It applies to any and all life stages. It is where a fish survives, feeds, grows, and reproduces. The habitat of a fish depends on the species, from wetlands, to rivers, to coral reefs, to lakes, and more.
Most fish do require well-oxygenated water. But, there are a few exceptions in which fish have evolved to tolerate low oxygen conditions or even low water conditions. Mudskippers (family Gobiidae; subfamily Oxudercinae), for example, are amphibious fish that are adapted to intertidal zones. Some live in mud flat habitat that is only covered in water at high tides.
Habitat is where it’s at!
