Gobies live all over the world except the polar regions.

Most gobies live near the coast and in estuaries (EHS-chew-air-eez), or the areas where rivers meet the sea. About half of known species live in coral reefs. Some gobies live in caves, and some live in rivers and streams.

In some areas gobies are eaten by the local people. They also are used in aquariums.
