Although the strongly piscivorous goby, Eleotris pisonis (food habits in Nordlie 1981), occurs in the 500-m stretch below Paria Falls, only Rivulus hartii, guppies, Poecilia reticulata, and the small gobies Sicydium punctatum and Gobiesox strumosus are known to occur above this waterfall, leaving almost the entire Paria River free of any strongly piscivorous fish.
Oyster reefs are generally considered essential habitats for resident nekton such as the naked goby (Gobiosoma bosc), feather blenny (Hypsoblennius hentz), and skilletfish (Gobiesox strumosus) (Coen et al.
hentz, freckled blenny Hypsoblennius ionthas, skilletfish Gobiesox strumosus, oyster toadfish Opsanus tau, and gulf toadfish Opsanus beta, have been shown to be dependent on oysters for reproduction, depositing their eggs on or inside oyster shells (Breitburg 1999, Coen et al.
Positive correlations between inflow and larval abundances of 2 species (Rhithropanopeus harrisii and Gobiesox strumosus) appeared to be caused by advection of upstream larvae downstream into the study area, whereas similar correlations with postsettlement juveniles of other species (Eurypanopeus depressus and Petrolisthes armatus) suggested bottom-up improvements to postsettlement survival.
Skilletfish (Gobiesox strumosus) abundance also decreased significantly over time between June and September ([r.sup.2] = 0.985, P = 0.005).

The skilletfish (Gobiesox strumosus), whereas found only on the reef, was not sufficiently abundant to achieve statistical significance.
