Many of them (several species of herring, almost all servie fish, etc.) are semi-migratory and passage species, and some species are fully adapted to marine conditions of life.

Most of the group of brackish-water fishes of marine origin can withstand large desalination, and others (several species of gobies, etc.) live in fresh water. It is autochthonous relict species characteristic of the Ponto-Caspian basin. Their origin is connected with seas that filled the black sea geosyncline during the Neogene.
