What do they look like?
Common Gobies are small fish with a sandy grey colouration and darker patches blotching their back and sides. Their eyes are large and sit high up on their heads.
Where can I see them in Scotland?
Common Gobies are found all around British and Irish coasts, usually in shallow inland waters. They prefer open sandy or muddy habitats such as estuaries and salt marshes, but they may be found in more densely vegetated habitats, too. You will also find these fish in rockpools on the middle to lower shore, or in brackish lochs and lagoons.
