    Fish gill morphology and function are intricately related. Adjustments in gill morphology during adaptation of fish to environmental changes are often instrumental in conserving physiological functions. But optimization of one particular gill function by an environmentally induced morphological modification may be detrimental to other gill. Environmental variation is a potent force affecting phenotypic expression. While freshwater fishes have provided a compelling example of the link between the environment and phenotypic diversity, few studies have been conducted with arid-zone fishes, particularly those that occur in geographically isolated regions where species typically inhabit intermittent and ephemeral creeks.

      Ko et al. () examined DNA barcoding to evaluate the accuracy of traditional morphological identification of Taiwan larval fishes by five different larval fish taxonomists. Marine larval fish were collected in the northern, southern and north-western seawaters of Taiwan over a two-year period yielding a sample size of specimens per year.   The percid fishes (or perch family) comprise many species including the perch, pikeperch, yellow perch, walleye and the darters. These species are of great ecological and economic importance, being important components of the freshwater ecosystem and recreational and commercial fisheries. Percid Fishes covers aspects such as systematics, morphology, biology, ecology, diseases and .

      The author reviewed the detection and identification methods, differential keys, fish intermediate hosts, and morphological characteristics of FBT metacercariae. FBT metacercariae found in freshwater fish are classified mainly into 4 families, i.e., Opisthorchiidae, Heterophyidae, Echinostomatidae, and Clinostomidae.   In this study, we measured the ecomorphological correlates of twenty dominant fish species of Amazonian floodplain lakes (Saint-Paul et al., ; Siqueira-Souza and Freitas, ; Santos et al., ; Soares et al., ) in order to identify groups of species with specific morphological features and relate them to ecological aspects of.

We evaluated the morphological, distributional, and genetic characteristics of the freshwater sculpin, Cottus pollux, in Kyushu Island, Japan. Based on pectoral fin ray number, the sculpins inhabiting 30 rivers were divided into two types [modes 13 (M13) and 15 (M15)].

We evaluated four environmental parameters: length of main river (L-MR), average gradient of main river (G-MR). The morphology and morphometry of otoliths have emerged as powerful indicators of ecological characteristics of fishes.
