The name of a fish is taken from its shape, characteristics or history. Unlike the naming of chemical compounds, for example, chemical nomenclature is a set of rules for chemical compounds that are arranged systematically based on the rules issued by the IUPAC (International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry). Naming various types of fish as symbols attached to them is interesting to study, especially linguistically and from a cultural perspective. Barthes argues that signification can be divided into denotation and connotation. What is meant by denotation is the level of descriptive and literal meaning shared by most members of a culture. Meanwhile, what is meant by connotation is the meaning given by signifiers that are connected to a wider culture such as beliefs, attitudes, frameworks and ideologies of social formation. The research method used in this study is qualitative. The research data was taken using observation techniques, namely visiting a group of marine ornamental fish fishermen using primary data obtained from CV. Rezky Bahari Makassar city and visually documenting the ornamental fish in question, the second technique is interviewed by interviewing Marine Ornamental Fish Fishermen regarding the names of fish and traditions in the waters of South Sulawesi, the third technique is literature study by reading and reviewing references about Ornamental Fish The sea in the waters of South Sulawesi.
