Fish is a sitcom that aired on ABC. It was a spin-off of Barney Miller.

The series Fish focused on the domestic side of his life. Fish and Bernice became foster parents to five racially-mixed children known as "Persons in Need of Supervision", or PINS. The kids were played by Todd Bridges, Denise Miller, Len Bari, John Cassisi, and Sarah Natoli. Barry Gordon played a college student majoring in child psychology, assisting Fish and Bernice in supervising the kids. Miller and Cassisi both had appeared previously as the same characters throughout the first three seasons of Barney Miller, usually getting in trouble with the law and Fish having to supervise them.
