How many fish are there?

To be clear, I am not looking for the number of different fish species in the world. I would like to know how many total individual fish there are. I think there are a lot, and I want to know the real number. Thank you!

    There are millions more fish than people and man cannot accurately determine that number either.

    Millions.  But fish are born and are eaten so there is no one that counts all fish in the world.

    Soon there will be more plastic than fish in our water, making your question irrelevant.

    More than anyone can count. Millions and millions, if not more.

    That sounds like a question Trump would ask.

    At best it is an educated guess as to how many fish there are but According to the best estimates of scientists, there are 3,500,000,000,000 (3.5 trillion) fish currently living in the ocean. The fish population is one that is very difficult to estimate. That, of course, leaves out the billions of fish living in lakes, ponds, and streams.

    The best estimates by scientists place the number of fish in the ocean at 3,500,000,000,000. Counting the number of fish is a daunting and near-impossible task. The number is also constantly changing due to factors such as predation, fishing, reproduction, and environmental state.
