    Fish is countable when speaking of the animals; the plural is normally the same (one fish, two fish), but fishes is also a plural, and is used mostly when speaking scientifically of different kinds.

    When discussing food, fish is an uncountable ingredient: there is a lot of fish in this chowder.

    可數名詞countable noun 前用 "many"

    不可數名詞uncountable noun 前用 "much"

    你查一下字典, fish 是可數名詞, 其複數有兩個形式: fish, fishes

    (第一個fish表示多條魚,關於魚的數量, 第二個fishes表示多種魚,關於品種的數量.)

    所以應該寫 many fish
