As a general rule all transports are dedicated in the codex if they don't come under a specific category in the FoC, instead likea n 'upgrade' for a squad, the only ones that aren't will take up a Foc (eg falcons and landraiders), i wouldnt really describe them as transports, to keep things simple i always describe transports as thiose whcih are dedicated and tanks to those which aren't!

hope that made sense!

a little off topic but it seems a little strange to me, why wouldn't u take the fishes as tanks and deploy them right next to the squad? then u could just move into the fish on the first turn and away u go.

you can't 'not' purchase a transport for a squad when you take a transport you have to elect the squad you are purchasing it for.

(the transport then become part of that squad)

you can as you say have a unit start unembartked from It's transport and then embark the unit the 'Fish was bought for.

you can also have them start unembarked and have the 'fish fly off, however a dedicated transport may only transport the unit it was bought for.

Ehm... So if you have 2 FW with 'Fishes from the start, and one group of FW die, and the other groups 'Fish goes KABOOM, can't the first groups 'Fish take the other group of FW?
Seems strange to me, logical.

Nope. Perhaps they don't have the keys. :-\ You don't have to use the Devilfish as a transport, but it can never transport a squad it was not specifically purchased for. And there will need to be at least one squad on the table that it was nominally purchased for. Note that both the tank and the squad it was purchased for need to come on at the same time if they were kept in reserve.
