Yeah, we have a school of fishes and a shoal of fishes depending on the social behaviour of the fish. For instance; If the group of fish came together for a social reason, it is known as a Shoal of fishes. But when they are swimming in the same direction in a well coordinated manner; it is called A school of fishes.
