A fast fish with a huge impact Globalization is breaking down barriers – also for plants and animals on the lookout for new homes. Rivers are also changing, in particular through the introduction of non-native species, often brought in by passing ships. In the Danube River, scientists have been observing a fish species conquering a new habitat and creating a totally new ecosystem in the process. Recent decades have seen massive changes to many river systems. To improve passage for...

Ancient Fish Fossils Give Insight Into Evolutionary History Of Gobioid Order
2013-05-16 13:51:46

LMU Fish fossils that are about 23 million years old give unprecedented insight into the evolutionary history of the gobioid order, one of the most species-rich groups among the modern bony fishes. Researchers led by paleontologist Professor Bettina Reichenbacher from the Division of Paleontology and Geobiology at LMU´s Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences have completed a comprehensive analysis of fish fossils which they assign to the group of bony fishes that includes...

Seaweed Attacks, Corals Calls For Help
2012-11-09 20:46:42

April Flowers for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online When toxic seaweed threatens the health of coral, what does the coral do? It calls for help, of course. A new study, published in Science, reveals that corals under attack send signals to fish "bodyguards." The fish respond quickly, moving in to trim back the toxic alga that can kill the coral if not removed in a timely manner. A team from the Georgia Institute of Technology has found evidence that these mutualistic fish...

Breeding is on their minds as the mating season draws to an end. Guys drop dead by the hour, making goby girls go all out in their hunt for a mate to father their offspring. We're often told that males are eager and females coy. But the story is not quite so simple if you are a two-spotted goby, researchers from NTNU's Department of Biology have found. Two-spotted gobies are tiny fishes with a remarkable sex life amongst the seaweeds. Snorkeling in chilly Nordic waters, PhD candidate...

UC´s Lauren Flick, a 19-year-old, triple-major senior, will present findings at an upcoming regional conference on the first-ever use of a surgically implanted device to record the habits of snakes in their natural environment. This particular study holds promise in “keeping score” as Ohio´s Lake Erie water snake defends its native habitat against an invasive fish species. Thanks to research by a University of Cincinnati undergraduate student and two team members,...

Monash University researchers have discovered that male Australian desert goby fish are surprisingly strategic when it comes to courtship, adapting their tactics depending on the frequency of their contact with females. Attracting females involves significant time, energy and exposure to predation and previous research has indicated that male gobies are more likely to court larger females due to the number of eggs they carry compared with their smaller counterparts. However, new research,...

Jellyfish moved into the oceans off the coast of southwest Africa when the sardine population crashed. Now another small fish is living in the oxygen-depleted zone part-time and turning the once ecologically dead-end jellyfish into dinner, according to an international team of scientists. "Originally there were sardines in the area but over fishing caused the sardine population to collapse in the 1960s and 1970s," said Victoria A. Braithwaite, professor of fisheries and biology, Penn State....

Canadian scientists say they have discovered an alarming invasion of round goby fish into Great Lakes tributaries that might threaten endangered fishes. The researchers from the University of Toronto, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and the University of Guelph identified a significant invasion of round goby (neogobius melanostomus) into many Great Lakes tributaries, including several areas of the Thames, Sydenham, Ausable and Grand rivers. This invasion poses many potential threats...

Convict Blenny, Pholidichthys leucotaenia
2013-01-03 15:48:38

The convict blenny lives in tunnels around coastal reefs and in shallow lagoons of the Western South Pacific, mainly from the Philippines to the Solomon Islands. The young of this fish will often swim in schools around the reef heads and ledges so tightly packed together they will look like one organism. This species, sometimes called a blenny and sometimes called a goby, actually it is neither. It is in a classification alone with one other species called a worm blenny. The convict blenny...

Graham's gudgeon, Grahamichthys radiata, is a sleeper of the family Eleotridae, the only member of the genus Grahamichthys. It is found only around New Zealand in shallow coastal waters. Its length is between 1.97 and 2.56 in (5 and 6.5 cm). Graham's gudgeon is a small goby-like fish with two separate dorsal fins, a large fan shaped pectoral fin, pelvic fins that are not fused beneath the body like those of true gobies, and a square-cut tail. The head is smooth and bluntly pointed, with a...
