Modern fish do indeed belong to a different clade than our own. But they too are descended from fish and are therefore fish themselves, as we are. Just because our own fish ancestors left the oceans and evolved into tetrapods and theirs didn’t doesn’t mean that our ancestors stopped being fish. At which generation would they have stopped being fish?
Didn't your middle school biology teacher tease you by assuring you that jellyfish are not fish? that starfish are not fish? did you ever wonder why?
As I have repeatedly pointed out, jellyfish and starfish belong to different animal clades. They are not vertebrates, and are therefore not fish. We are vertebrates, therefore we are fish.
