On February 25, 2013, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued two new express mail stamps featuring fish. About 14,000 species -- two-thirds of all known fish -- live in the world's oceans. Typically, each of these creatures is suited to a particular environment and cannot survive anywhere else. Two factors that play an important role in determining which fish live where are water depth and temperature. The largest and fastest swimmers, for example, live near the surface of open waters, far from shore. Fish that reside in midwater areas, a murky environment around 600 feet below the surface, are generally dark-colored and may even possess light producing organs. Bottom dwellers are equally distinctive. Accustomed to a cold, dark habitat, many of these creatures have large heads and eyes, as well as long, slender tails that aid in navigation of the slimy ocean floor.
