    there are many fish in the sea
    there are many fishes in the sea

    fishes= many kinds of fish right

    It is fairly unusual to use the word 'fishes'. You should use 'fishes' only if you specifically want to refer to types of fish, usually in a very specific location. To me, your sentence seems a little too general to use 'fishes'.
