Even though some recent salmonid and cottid
taxa may be intolerant of salt water, they are excluded because the time scale of this analysis likely includes their salt-tolerant ancestors.
A review of the marine cottid
fishes of California.
For example, large-mouthed marine cottid
fish species have been shown in a laboratory setting to have a high feeding performance on both slowmoving prey (e.g., crabs, isopods, and gastropods) and more mobile, and thus more elusive, prey (e.g., fishes and shrimp), but in nature they feed predominantly on elusive prey .
For example, the cottid
fish (Clinocottus analis) changes from ram feeding (capturing a prey by rushing the whole body from a distance, with mouth parts protruded) to suction feeding (capturing a nearby prey by rapidly expanding the mouth cavity, drawing in water and the prey item) during the juvenile period (Cook, 1996).

Previous descriptions were based on misidentified specimens or were made at a more conservative generic level because of difficulty distinguishing among species of Icelinus and between Icelinus and other sympatric cottid

Esselstyn and Wildman (1999) found two cottid

A fourth cottid
in the Baltic Sea, the European bullhead Cottus gobio Linnaeus, 1758, was not included in the study because of insufficient material.
Abstract--A new species of the cottid
genus Triglops Reinhardt is described on the basis of 21 specimens collected in Aniva Bay, southern Sakhalin Island, Russia, and off Kitami, on the northern coast of Hokkaido, Japan, at depths of 73-117 m.
