Family Gobiidae

The gobies are an enormous family of fishes, with 251 genera and 1700 species. The exact number of these that can be found in North Carolina waters is a bit cloudy, but we suspect the number to approach 30. Instead of listing an all inclusive list, we will be adding species as we encounter them.
