First, the organism has to die.
The fish then sinks to the bottom of the sea.
Over millions of years, the fish gets buried quickly by heavy material. In this terrain, the organism would probably get buried by mud.
Minerals then start to replace parts of the organism, changing the organism to stone.
Over millions of years, the Earth's crust then moves the layer where the fossil is closer to the surface
The fossil is now at the top of the surface. Different things like wind, rain, or any type of strong force will push the top layers covering the fossil.
The fossil which used to be a fish is then pushed into shore.
The fossil is finally exposed. Researchers or scientists find the organism, and then claim it as a fossil.
