“How Much Is The Fish?” is a song by German Techno group Scooter. It was released in June 1998 as the lead single from their fifth studio album No Time to Chill. It is the first song to feature Axel Coon. “How Much Is The Fish?” samples the song “Zeven Dagen Lang” (Seven days long) by the Dutch band Bots.

The background music sample comes from the album version of the song Paradox from the German band 666.
