The Gulf killifish is one of the largest killifish species (to 18 cm), with a blunt head and short snout. The caudal peduncle is relatively deep. Mandibular pores = 5. More

stages of gulf killifish in various salinities and found salinity ranges of 0-40‰ to be suitable for incubation. Age at maturation: Migration: Growth and Population structure: Females reach larger sizes than males. More

noted in gulf killifish at 5 d PI, as tracts of basophilic cells were still evident. More

Gulf killifish, Fundulus grandis, embryos were injected with N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG). Retention of carcinogen in the egg immediately after injection was highly variable. More

The hypoxia tolerance of the Gulf killifish was higher than that of the lesser blue crab and the blue crab. Minimal site differences existed in hypoxia tolerance. More

Gulf killifish are bronze-gray in color, although spawning males will be darker with glittering specks of color. It has only one dorsal fin and no spines in any of its fins. More

The gulf killifish can tolerate low oxygen and variable salinity ranging from fresh water to salt concentrations several times that of seawater. They also have high tolerance for temperature variability. They feed primarily on crustaceans and other smaller fish species. More
