In animate molecules, fish molecule is the name for a fish viewed as a single abstract reactive molecule. The molecular formula for a average fish was first calculated in 2005 by American electrochemical engineer Libb Thims, as shown below: [1]

molecular formula (fish)=CE22HE22OE22NE21PE20SE19CaE20KE18ClE18NaE18MgE18

This is a molecule according to which the standard laws and principles of chemistry, physics, and thermodynamics apply. [2] The fish molecule formed through a process of chemical synthesis, the first version of which was formed, according to fossil record, 0.7 billion years ago. [3]

American civil-ecological engineer Jeff Tuhtan, began in 2010 to develop a thermodynamic model of fish in rivers which was loosely based on the concept of a fish from the molecular formula point of view, an idea originating in English animal psychologist Lloyd Morgan's 1929 "biocule" model of a rabbit. [4] In this combined perspective, a fish can be defined as a CHNOPS-based animated organism.
