In this chapter, we present several fish algorithms that are inspired by some key features of the fish school/swarm, namely, artificial fish school algorithm (AFSA), fish school search (FSS), group escaping algorithm (GEA), and shark-search algorithm (SSA). We first provide a short introduction in Sect. 9.1. Then, the detailed descriptions regarding AFSA and FSS can be found in Sects. 9.2 and 9.3, respectively. Next, Sect. 9.4 briefs two emerging fish inspired algorithms, i.e., GEA and SSA. Finally, Sect. 9.5 summarises in this chapter
