The starfish is incorrectly named. The starfish simply isn’t a fish and for centuries marine biologists and scientists have been trying to get it renamed the “sea star” as it is. In fact, the starfish is an echinoderm. The echinoderm group also includes closely related species like the sand dollars, sea urchins and sea cucumber.
