The recent studies, suggesting that the fish are more intelligent than they appears, are discussed. In many areas, such as memory, their cognitive power match or exceed those of higher vertebrates, including non-human primates. It has been found that fish are the most primitive vertebrates and evolutions has progressed by gradual linear gradients from fish through amphibians, reptiles and primates to human. It has been also found that the structure of fish brain is varied and different from humans but functions in similar way.
