  • Description:
    Fishes of the family Gobiidae are numerous and diverse, although they share certain similarities in their life histories. This paper compares several of these aspects: temperature and salinity tolerance ranges, food habits, sizes and ages at maturation, maximum sizes, maximum ages, spawning seasons, number of spawnings, intervals between spawning, fecundities, egg sizes, incubation periods, lengths of newly-hatched larvae, times until metamorphosis, and lengths of larvae at metamorphosis. Gobiids are important as aquarium fishes and are used to some extent as food and bait, though their major importance is probably their role in nearshore and pelagic food chains.
