Prehistoric Fish are early fish that are known only from fossil records. They are the earliest known vertebrates, and include the fish that lived through the Cambrian to the Quaternary Periods. The study of prehistoric fish is called paleoichthyology. Fish have played, and continue to play, a vital role throughout the seas & waterways of our planet, providing larger sea, land & sky creatures an abundant food source for their survival. Fish fossils are extremely common and as several species of fish were schooling fish it is not uncommon for fossil fish to still be preserved in their shoals, with some specimens even being preserved on top of each other!
