The Biology of Gobies

Editors : Robert Patzner, James L. Van Tassell, Marcelo Kovacic & B. G.

Among all vertebrates, gobies are second in diversity only to the teleost
family Cyprinidae. The Gobiidae consists of more than 200 genera and nearly
2,000 species and make up the largest family of marine fishes. Gobies
account for as much as 50% of the energy flow in coral reef communities.
Their small size, ability to adapt to numerous ecological niches and to be
bred in aquaria has led to numerous studies both in the field and
laboratory. Gobies are found from above the high tide line to depths of over
1,100 m. Some species are found only within caves, others deep inside
sponges, and some others climb waterfalls to return to their native streams.
They vary reproductively from gonochoric to hermaphrodite, monogamy to
polygyny and promiscuity, some have short life spans and reproduce only once
while others have longer life spans reproducing one or more times per year.
