The "Order" is a part of animal (specifically birds and fish) classification. It groups together the "families" of fish by traits.

It is described as:

A taxonomic rank used in the classification of organisms. Other well-known ranks are life, domain, kingdom, phylum, class, family, genus, and species, with order fitting in between class and family. An immediately higher rank, superorder, may be added directly above order, while suborder would be a lower rank.
