    This special issue of Evolutionary Ecology provides ten papers that have been presented at a conference on Evolutionary Ecology of Fishes in 2009. In addition to briefly summarizing the main content of the papers which is related to adaptive radiations, processes of ecological divergence, and fisheries-induced evolution, we review and synthesize in short the recent advance in studies on evolutionary ecology of fishes. We conclude that fishes are excellent model systems to study evolutionary ecology of animals, and suggest three promising new research avenues; (1) the contribution of behavioural processes to evolution, in particular the consideration of animal personalities and predator–prey interactions, (2) metabolic physiology and parasite-host interactions as new niche dimensions to be considered for adaptive diversification, and (3) the opportunities for mechanistic understanding of adaptation and speciation emerging from new genetic tools.
