Three of the species without significant responses at this site--fourhorn sculpin (Myoxocephalus quadricornis), rainbow smelt (Osmerus mordax), and Arctic flounder (Pleuronectes glacialis)-are nearshore marine species that are less tolerant of low salinities than the other species assessed in BACI analyses, all of which were anadromous or amphidromous. Since the net at Site EE sits close to one of the outflow channels of the Sagavanirktok River, it is plausible that the three marine species were in effect sandwiched between sounds from the north and west and the freshwater discharge from the Sagavanirktok River.
It is a benthopelagic and amphidromous fish (Riede, 2004) found in tropical waters (Nakamura and Parin, 1993) along the coastal waters of Indo-west Pacific and Indian Ocean (Bianchi, 1985; Nakamura and Parin, 1993).

Despite being freshwater-adapted, many species exhibit an amphidromous life-history strategy, where larvae require brackish or salt water for development before returning to fresh water as juveniles (Hunte, 1979a, b).
