Ray-finned fish are a group of bony fishes that have fins supported by a series of bones, or rays, and are the most diverse and abundant group of vertebrates in the world, with over 30,000 species. Ray-finned fish can be found in both fresh and saltwater habitats around the world. They typically have scales and two sets of paired fins: pectoral fins near their heads and pelvic fins near their tails. Ray-finned fish also have gills to breathe underwater, as well as an operculum to protect them from predators. They feed on a variety of prey including insects, worms, crustaceans, mollusks, algae and other small aquatic organisms. Many ray-finned species are important sources of food for humans around the world.
