The suborder Gobioidei consisted of six divided families (Thacker, 2009), and Gobiidae was the largest family including five subfamilies (Gobiidae, Gobionellinae, Sicydiinae, Oxudercinae and Amblyopinae) (Hoese, 1984).
This means that on the Isle of Salvora (and elsewhere), mink would be limited to capturing fish in the intertidal zone, mainly rocky benthic fish of rocky pools such as, for example, Gobiidae and Bleniidae.

Goby species include families Eleotridae, Rhyacichthyidae and Gobiidae are of course well adapted to high flow conditions due to their suction cups formed by fused pelvic fins that help them effectively cling on rocks and boulders against the extreme current [11].

Las familias Eleotridae y Gobiidae pertenecientes a este orden, son tambien reconocidas como habitantes comunes de las zonas litorales debido a la capacidad diadroma de muchas de sus especies, lo que les permite pasar de aguas saladas a aguas con bajas salinidades sin dificultadas fisiologicas (NORDLIE, 2012).

Conversely, these rearrangements have been scarcely identified in Perciformes at a polymorphic stage in Pomacentridae [32], Gobiidae [33, 34], Lutjanidae [35], Apogonidae [36,37], andUranoscopidae [38] or else restricted to a particular taxon like Sparisoma (parrotfishes) [39].
