Der Stichling -
 The Sticklebacks
Die Stichlinge (Gasterosteidae) sind eine Familie der Fische, die in fast der gesamten nördlichen Hemisphäre verbreitet ist. Alle Stichlinge bauen zur Laichzeit aus mit einem Nierensekret verbundenem Pflanzenmaterial Nester und zeigen ein ausgeprägtes, zum Teil sehr komplexes Brutpflegeverhalten. Der Bau des Nestes und die Fürsorge für den Nachwuchs obliegt den männlichen Tieren („Vaterfamilie“). Sie verteidigen das Brutrevier gegen innerartliche Konkurrenten und gegen Bedrohungen durch artfremde Tiere. Häufig verpaaren sich männliche Stichlinge mit mehr als einem Weibchen, und diese sind in der Lage, in einer Brutsaison mehrere Male abzulaichen.
The Gasterosteidae are a family of fish including the sticklebacks. They are related to pipefish and seahorses. Sticklebacks are most commonly found in the ocean, but some can be found in fresh water. The freshwater taxa were trapped in Europe, Asia, and North America after the Ice Age, and have evolved different features from the marine species. Sticklebacks are carnivorous, feeding on small animals such as insects, crustaceans and fish larvae. Sticklebacks are characterised by the presence of strong and clearly isolated spines in their dorsal fins. An unusual feature of sticklebacks is that they have no scales, although some species have bony armour plates.
