A School of Fish
There are 26 species of fish that are 3 letters followed by the word FISH. The following list are all fishes, so if you want to make a 9 letter word by adding –ES they are all good. There are other 7 letter words like HUFFISH which meet the pattern of ---FISH but won’t be included in this list
I will just pause here for a moment in case anyone wants to see how many of this school of fish they can catch on their own, but I know most people will just want to scroll down the page to look at the list.
Two of the fish in this school can also be used as verbs. That means you can add -ED or –ING as a suffix. More about those words at the end.
OK. Here is the list. I hope there are a few you haven't seen before:
BATFISH BOXFISH CATFISH CODFISH COWFISH DOGFISH FINFISH FOXFISH GARFISH GEMFISH HAGFISH HOGFISH JEWFISH LUBFISH MAYFISH MUDFISH OARFISH PANFISH PIGFISH PINFISH PUPFISH RATFISH REDFISH SAWFISH SUNFISH TUBFISH
The two entries in the above list which, as well as being genuine fish, can also be used as verbs are:
CATFISH To create a false identity to lure someone into a relationship
PANFISH To fish for any type of small fish that can be fried whole
There are also a couple of 3 letter + FISH words that can be used as verbs but are not genuine fishes themselves:
ICEFISH To fish though a hole in the ice
OUTFISH To surpass in fishing
