FISH is just another remote/file transfer network protocol to access a
remote server via SSH. It has defined commands that never change no matter
what Linux/Unix system you use. It requires /bin/sh to execute commands.
FISH is a kioslave and can be used in konqueror
<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konqueror> and dolphin.

That is what I got from the internet. Putting two together, kate uses FISH
to remote via ssh to another computer. Kate sounds like something I need to
be using.
