Checklist of marine fishes from São Paulo State, Brazil

The number of marine fish species listed for the coast of the São Paulo state is reasonably high in comparison with other Brazilian coastal regions of similar extension and mostly represented by demersal species that resulted from collecting efforts along the continental shelf. Species from rocky bottoms and reef areas as well as those from the deep sea are less abundant. Since the inventory is far from complete and no projects related to marine fishes have been carried out through the BIOTA/FAPESP program, it is expected that research groups involved in systematics, biology and other aspects related to the study of marine fishes be stimulated to contribute to increase of the knowledge of the group.
