The practice of confining fish in order to be seen happened long before 1000 BC. At the present time the market of ornamental fish is a multimillionaire international activity in great expansion. In Brazil, the capture of sea fish with this purpose appeared at the final seventies and in 2000 it was among the first ten exporters. The Decree of IBAMA (the official sector for natural resources) to regulate this trade was issued only this year. This paper was written for the purpose of organizing the main information on biology of the species thar have been more frequently exported, according to the technical report of IBAMA, based on scientific publications on the official list of the commercial species we can find some of them (7 families and 16 species) considered as the most important ones, in particular those of the Pomacanthidae family. A summary of the main information on sinonimia, meristic and morphometrical characters, the greatest size, behavior and food, reproduction, habitat and geographical distribution, commercial importance and data on survival of sea fish in aquariums belonging to these 16 species can be found in this article. It is expected that this compilation of biological data may help researchers that intend to organize and monitor fishing activities related to these species.
