Altaic etymology :

Search within this database
Proto-Altaic: *di̯ági ( ~ -i̯o-)
Nostratic: Nostratic
Meaning: fish
Russian meaning: рыба
Mongolian: *ǯiɣa-
Korean: *thi
Japanese: *(d)íwuá
Comments: АПиПЯЯ 100, 275, Дыбо 46, Лексика 178, Vovin 2000. TM *ǯoji (in fact *ǯobi) 'Salmo lenoc' (compared in some of the above sources) has a precise match in WMong. ǯebege and has to be separated; see *ǯi̯abo. The Jpn. form could also belong there phonetically, but the close match with Kor. thi makes its derivation from *di̯ági more plausible.
