Relationships among four genera of mojarras (Teleostei: Perciformes: Gerreidae) from the western Atlantic and their tentative placement among percomorph fishes.
Families with more species were Carangidae (10 spp), Gerreidae (4 spp), Engraulidae (3 spp) and Lutjanidae (3 spp).
The Gerreidae family has very abundant species in the coastal lagoons, where they form large shoals and feed mainly on benthic organisms.

In Brazil, studies focused on the description of the sagitta otolith being: Sciaenidae (CORREA; VIANA, 1992), Carangidae (ABILHOA; CORREA, 1992), Gerreidae (LEMOS et al., 1992), Engraulidae and Clupeidae (LEMOS et al., 1995).
This pattern indicates that these chromosomal regions as poor cytotaxonomic markers, differing from other Atlantic fishes in which the identification of ribosomal cistrons has proved to be efficient to distinguish apparently homogeneous karyotypes, as in Lutjanidae [40], Serranidae [41], and Gerreidae [42] or even population units [43, 44].
