Yes fish have brains but not in the same sense that human beings have brains as their's is a bit more primitive and simple.

An example of fish intelligence which of course stems from having a brain is the fact that fish can recognize someone especially the one that will feed them. Fish can also feel pain, feel threatened and have the feeling of fear.

They cannot feel emotions such as happiness or sadness and do not feel the emotional loss of a fellow fish or fishkeeper although many dolphin experts might disagree with this.

Hope I've been able to shed some light on the subject of fish brains.
