Abstract Since 1861, freshwater fish have been studied at different periods in New Caledonia. The first list was published in 1915, but the major inventories were done between 1998 and 2003. These inventories allowed the discovery of many new species and the publication, in 2003, of the Atlas of Freshwater fish and crustaceans of New Caledonia, which listed 64 freshwater fish species. Between 2004 and 2010, additional specific surveys were conducted by the MNHN and 9 species were added. Among them, 3 were new for science. Gobiidae family represents 30% of the freshwater fish of New Caledonia. This high percentage is explained by their particular life cycle adapted to insular systems.
