Synonyms of "Fish" and their differences

Q: do you like fish? ve do you like fishes? arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Yes, absolutely!
But... you could say it about the animal as a pet, too. Usually if someone says "do you like fish" I would think they mean eating fish. But if you are in a pet store, it would mean just think the animal is cool. 😊
For example if someone says "do you have a pet?" "Yes I have a cat. Do you have a pet?" "No, but I'm thinking of getting one. Do you like fish?" That would also be correct language but talking about the animal, not eating. Same sentence, different context. Does that make sense?
Q: ​​The fish which I caught was eaten by my brother, who came from the baseball game,while I was away. ve ​​The fish which I had caught was eaten by my brother, who came from the baseball game,while I was away. arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Honestly nothing. They both use the past tense. English has a lot of these instances. In fact, there are a lot of other ways this sentence could be written in the past tense. The only difference I could think of is that using "had caught" makes it seem like the fish was caught longer ago than just saying caught.
Q: The fish which I caught was eaten by my brother, who came from the baseball game,while I was away. ve The fish that I caught was eaten by my brother, who came from the baseball game,while I was away. ve should I use "which" or "that"? please let me know the correct word and reason grammatically or others. arasındaki fark nedir?
A: either way is fine; I think the word "that" is more natural. but I would rephrase the sentence as a whole to make it sound better:

"while I was away, my brother, who came (home?) from the baseball game, ate the fish I caught"
Q: i can't eat fish ve i don't eat fish arasındaki fark nedir?
A: "I can't eat fish" sounds like you're forced to not eat it because of a fish allergy. (私は魚が食べられない)

"I don't eat fish" sounds like you can eat it, but you choose not to. (私は魚を食べない)
Q: There is one fish ve There is a fish arasındaki fark nedir?
A: There are words in English that have no Chinese equivalent that are called "articles". There are three articles:

The
A
An

They all come before nouns.

Saying "The fish" would mean it was the only fish in the world.

Saying "a fish" would mean that you are talking about a certain fish, even though other fish exist.

You would not say "an fish" because the article "an" only comes before nouns that start with vowels: "a,e,i,o,u".

The article "a" always comes before nouns that start with consonants, which is all of the letters except for a,e,i,o, and u.

" One fish" is just "一鱼”
