Dear Mr Rudman,
I wish to know whether a sea slug is a fish.
email@example.comStephaine, 2002 (Apr 15) Is sea slug a fish?. [Message in] Sea Slug Forum. Australian Museum, Sydney. Available from http://www.seaslugforum.net/find/6745
Sea Slugs are specialised snails, and many of them, such as the nudibranchs, have 'lost' their shells. If you go to the What is a Slug? page you will find some information and links to other pages which discuss this topic.
Snails are molluscs, a Phylum of animals that also includes squid, octopus, and clams. Fish on the other hand are chordates (including vertebrates), a Phylum which includes all animals with a backbone - fish, frogs, birds, mammals etc.
