A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish. In other folk traditions they can be benevolent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans. Mermaids are associated with the Sirens of Greek mythology and with the Sirenia, a biological order which comprises dugongs and manatees.
