Gobies are fishes of the family Gobiidae, one of the largest fish families comprising more than 2,000 species in more than 200 genera. Most of them are relatively small, typically less than in length. Gobies include some of the smallest vertebrates in the world, such as "Trimmatom nanus" and "Pandaka pygmaea", which are under long when fully grown. Some large gobies, such as some species of the genera "
" or "Periophthalmodon", can reach over in length, but that is exceptional. Generally, they are benthic, or bottom-dwellers. Although few are important as food for humans, they are of great significance as prey species for commercially important fish such as cod, haddock, sea bass, and flatfish. Several gobies are also of interest as aquarium fish, such as the bumblebee gobies of the genus "Brachygobius". Phylogenetic relationships of gobies have been studied using molecular data.
The family Gobiidae, made up of fish called gobies, are the largest marine family of fish with around 1,950 different species. Gobies commonly have their pelvic fins fused together, which allows them to use their pelvic fins as a suction device to keep them anchored on a hard surface such as a rock or piece of coral. Gobies often live in association with invertebrates such as sponges and sea urchins in or around corals both soft and hard; however, some species live on bare mud and sand. Gobies are typically small fish; many do not exceed a total length of 10 cm. Some of the smallest fish in the world belong to this suborder such as the "Trimmatom nanus". This species, found in the Indian Ocean, is only 8–10 mm as an adult. The largest of the gobiids is found in the South Atlantic and Caribbean region; the violet goby, "
broussenetti", can grow to a length of 50 cm; this goby. which is purple in color. resembles an eel with its elongated anal and dorasl fins. Some gobies in the genera "Periophthalmus" and "Boleophthalmus" are practically amphibious, meaning they can breath in and out of water. Species such as the Atlantic mudskipper ("Periophthalmus barbarus"), which can grow to a length of 25 cm, can actually breath air. These gobies skip across the mud of intertidal flats in mangrove swamps in search of food; adults feed mostly on crabs, insects, and other arthropods.
