-The "sea" is interesting. But what is interesting about it? I would reply "because there are many things living in it" without hesitation.
For humans, to get to know the things that live in the mysterious world called the "sea", they must first know the names. By remembering the names, the fish will become concreted on their fields of classification, uniquely registered in the human memory.
As stiff as it sounds, the starting point of remembering the names of fish and loving them is by treating the environment they live in with care. It would be an honor for this fish watching guide to help even a little in remembering the names and biological knowledge of thes fish in your minds.
