Hawaiʻi is home to the ʻoʻopu nākea, a freshwater goby that exhibits an amphidromous life history, meaning the adults mate in freshwater and lay their eggs near stream mounts. Once the larvae hatch, they swim to the ocean and stay there for a few months before migrating back upstream to freshwater, where they will complete their adult lives.
