Fish are fundamentally the aquatic vertebrate animals with or without scales. Fish are generally cold blooded or ectothermic animals whose body temperature changes with the change in temperature of water.

The History of Wine
Wine is made from fermented fruit juice, usually, but not always, grapes, as we shall see.
Grapes ferment naturally due to the chemical balance inherent in the grape. There’s no need to add sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients.
