Fish is plural for more then one of the same species. Fishes is plural for multiple species. Therefore if looking-in-a school of salmon, look-in-the fish. If looking into an aquarium with darters, minnows and sunfish, look-in-the fishes

On a different note, which is correct: fish or fishes. I know it has to do with the number verses species, but I'm not sure which is which.
