Day 5 as Described in Genesis

Then God said, “Let the waters teem with fish and other life, and let the skies be filled with birds of every kind.” So God created great sea animals, and every sort of fish and every kind of bird. And God looked at them with pleasure, and blessed them all. “Multiply and stock the oceans,” he told them, and to the birds he said, “Let your numbers increase. Fill the earth!” That ended the fifth day.
(Genesis 1:20-23 TLB)

This chronicles the rise of the sea creatures as well as the flying creatures and birds and the plethora of life forms that began to proliferate with the Cambrian explosion.
