Starfish or sea stars are echinoderms belonging to the class Asteroidea. The names “starfish” and “sea star” essentially refer to members of the class Asteroidea. There are 2,000 living species of starfish that occur in all the world’s oceans.

Starfish are among the most familiar of marine animals and possess a number of widely known traits, such as regeneration and feeding on mussels.  Starfish possess a wide diversity of body forms and feeding methods.

Starfish are capable of both sexual and asexual reproduction. Most species are dioecious, with separate male and female individuals, but some are hermaphrodites.
