In modern English, the usual plural form is 'fish'. However, 'fishes' is sometimes used meaning 'different species of fish'.
For example, sentence 1 below is clear, but sentence 2 is ambiguous or confusing.
1) More than 600 fishes are in danger of extinction.
2) More than 600 fish are in danger of extinction.
