It's a carving. :( 

 

Of course, it will help if you take a clearer photo. It is best to lay the object down on a flat surface and take a photo from directly on top of it, in good lighting. Holding the object in your hand while taking a picture leads to some motion blur. ;)

This is strictly an art piece. No resemblance to a real fish fossil. Look up images as to what an actual fish fossil looks like an you will certainly agree.

The only thing that might be ancient is the dust thats covering the piece.

I'll just underline the previous comments by also stating that this is obviously a carving and not a fossil.

Someone certainly took considerable time and effort to produce this carving.

It's one of those very rare exoskeleton fish. The spine is on the outside of the body. Lol

 

I don't believe this was asked. Is someone trying to sell this to you as a real fossil?  

You stated it is from "river area". The rock/ clay it is made from just might be from a river.  However, the fish I'm sorry to say is from the artists imagination.

Screams fake. Doesn't have even remotely accurate biological features.

It is only a work of art produced by human hands, and as such, it has mere artistic value! Here in my country there are hundreds of works of art like this:
