Diapterus rhombeus is one of the most abundant fish species in the Sepetiba bay, which is a 520 km2 semi-closed coastal area in Southeastern Brazil. The size and distribution of this species have been described in order to assess the use of the area as a rearing ground in both spatial and temporal (seasonal) dimensions. A fish sampling program was conducted monthly by using an otter trawl between October 1998 and September 1999, in three bay zones (outer, middle and inner), defined according to…

Spatial and temporal distribution patterns of the silver mojarra Eucinostomus argenteus (Perciformes: Gerreidae) in a tropical semi-enclosed bay.
The spatial and temporal distributions of the silver mojarra Eucinostomus argenteus, one of the most abundant teleost species in bays and estuaries, were determined.
Feeding ecology of three juvenile mojarras (Gerreidae) in a tropical estuary of northeastern Brazil
Children of mojarra used two important mechanisms for exploitation of resources, favouring the coexistence of these three species in the estuary, and differences related to the volumetric proportion of the main prey items were important for resource partitioning.
Age and growth of the fish, Gerres filamentosus (Cuvier, 1829) from Hurghada Red Sea, Egypt
It was concluded that it would be economical to protect this species from capture until at least their 5th year, after the fish has reached about 32.71 cm in total length and about 439.15 grams in weight.
Mysterious and elaborated: the reproductive behavior of the rhomboid mojarra, Diapterus rhombeus (Cuvier, 1829), in Brazilian mangrove habitats
The first detailed description of reproductive strategies performed by the rhomboid mojarra, Diapterus rhombeus, is provided, based on several mating events, which occurred in mangroves located in Todos os Santos Bay, Brazil.
Potential of carapeba (Eugerres brasilianus) for aquaculture production
The diet, reproductive period, and management of carapeba in recirculating aquaculture systems were analyzed and the best fish density was between 7 and 8 fish m /-3 , showing a good rates of centesimal composition, adapting well to the supplied diet.

This is the first report of a species of Henneguya parasitizing Eugerres brasilianus, a species that parasitize marine fish of the order Perciformes and is described using morphological and molecular data.
Urohyal size versus body-length and weight relationships for thirteen mojarras species (Perciformes: Gerreidae) in Mexican waters
P predictive regression equations between urohyal size and fish standard length and weight of thirteen species of Gerreidae living along the coasts of Mexico, could provide a reliable tool in trophic ecology and other studies by estimating the original body size and Weight of fish from measuring uro Hyal bone lengths.

Aspectos biológicos de Diapterus rhombeus (Cuvier) (Teleostei, Gerreidae) na Baía de Guaratuba, Paraná, Brasil
The morphological aspects of the gonads, the monthly changes on the Condition Factor, and lhe monthly distribution of the individual size groups, suggest that this population spawns during the spring, out the estuarine region.
Distribution and recruitment of mojarras (Perciformes, Gerreidae) in the continental margin of Sepetiba Bay, Brazil
Fishes of the family Gerreidae are an important resource in tropical and sub-tropical coastal lagoons and tended to be more abundant in the shallow mid-continental margin of the Bay, during the Autumn, which coincided with decreasing temperature and stable salinity and transparency.
Distribución, abundancia y parámetros poblacionales de la mojarra Diapterus rhombeus (Pisces: Gerreidae) en la Laguna de Términos, Campeche, México
Diapterus rhombeus dominates the nektonic community of Terminos Lagoon and is associated to zones with submerged vegetation, temperatures between 27 and 33°C and salinity between 25 and 36.5 UPS. A
Environmental influences on the demersal fish assemblages in the Sepetiba Bay, Brazil
Most species decreased in abundance over the 3-yr period of study, but many species were rare, indicating high spatial and temporal patchiness.
Factors affecting the distribution of juvenile estuarine and inshore fish
It is apparent however, that juveniles of many species are probably not attracted to estuaries per se but to shallow turbid areas, and the influence of high turbidity on fish may be linked to reduced predation pressure and perhaps food supply in shallow water.
Community structure of the demersal fish species of Laguna Joyuda, Puerto Rico
Overall abundance showed a wet season maximum, particularly because of recruitment of anchovies and cyclic visitors in April, May, and June, and fishes associated with the water column appeared to show greater variation in abundance than those associated with more stable benthic food webs.
The ichthyofaunal composition of the Elbe Estuary: an analysis in space and time
The ichthyofaunal composition exhibited pronounced annual cyclical changes in each region and thus occurred irrespective of whether or not the salinity in a region underwent pronounced changes during the year.
The reproductive biology of Gerres in Natal estuaries
An investigation of the reproductive state and gonad development of Gerreidae in Natal showed that the fry of Gerres rappi, G. acinaces and G. filamentosus entered estuaries at 10 mm (s.l.). They
Fish assemblages across the marine to low salinity transition zone of a temperate estuary
Abstract This 3-year study provides a large-scale perspective of fish assemblage structure across an ocean–estuarine ecotone, given range of salinity encountered (0.1–32) based on sampling at 12
Factors Influencing Fish Composition in an Australian Intermittently Open Estuary. Is Stability Salinity-Dependent?
Shellharbour Lagoon's fish assemblage appears resilient to perturbation and does not undergo distinct seasonal variations, which may be a result of the estuary's short open phases providing less opportunity for marine fishes to enter.
