多鳍鱼科(学名:Polypteridae)是软骨硬鳞亚纲 (Chondrostei)多鳍鱼目(Polypteriformes)目前仅存的一科,现存二属,又称恐龙鱼,是比较古老的辐鳍鱼类,全身有类似骨板的硬鳞,胸鳍有小的肉质叶,有鳍基骨,并不直接和肩胛骨连接,多鳍鱼有厚实的硬鳞,表面光滑有黏膜包裹,背部依据品种不同而有6至20个棘状背鳍, 这些棘状背鳍中的每一条都有锋利的刺状鳍骨。他们的下颌结构比起真骨附类的鱼 ,更相似于四足类的结构。 多鳍鱼有一定原始特征。这些的特征是有的肉质基叶的胸鳍,这和腔棘鱼相似,而他们也有呼吸孔 (spiracles)的。 所有多鳍鱼目成员都在非洲的淡水河、湖区栖息,主要为沼泽、浅泛滥区和出海的河口。

他们也有基础的肺部,可以从空气中吸取氧气,当在水中的氧气不足时,多鳍鱼会快速地游到表面吸气,此鱼在幼鱼期会像两栖类的有外鳃。在这些种类之中的最大长度为30cm至100cm以上。

本魚體延長呈圓柱狀,上頜與下頜等長,側線鱗片58至65個,體背兩側灰褐色,並具有大理石花紋,腹面白色至淡黃色,魚鰭有白點,背鰭硬棘9至11枚;臀鰭軟條14至15枚,體長可達60公分。 

本魚棲息在湖泊、河流氾濫的區域,屬肉食性,以魚類甲殼類及水生昆蟲等為食。能呼吸空氣而且如此能容忍溶氧量低的集中,仔魚具有外鰓。可做為觀賞魚。
