Over 1000 migratory fish species have been added to the Global Register of Migratory Species (GROMS) database, many of them from tropical waters. These species were included based on published literature and correspondence with specialists in the field. Additionally, approximately 400 new literature references have been added to GROMS. The following are some quick observations on the definitions, categorizations, and patterns of commonly available information on migratory fish species.
