The Gadopsis genus is a genus of small to medium sized predatory native freshwater fish. The Gadopsis genus was formerly considered to be in a family of its own (Gadopsidae) but is now generally considered to be part of the Percichthyidae family. Currently two species — river blackfish (Gadopsis marmoratus) and two-spined blackfish — are in the Gadopsis genus, but undescribed blackfish species are considered to exist, and may be added to the genus.
The Genus Gadopsis is further organized into finer groupings including:
- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 5 species and subspecies in the Genus Gadopsis: G. bispinosus (Two-Spined Blackfish) · G. fuscus · G. gibbosus · G. gracilis · G. marmoratus (Freshwater Blackfish)
