A brackish fish is a fish that needs some salt in their water to survive but not enough to make it marine. So the salinity level for them is usually around 1.008 I believe... But I'm not that sure.

AquaKai is right. Most brackish fish come from areas where rivers meet oceans, so the salt from the ocean mixes into the freshwater river and forms a "brackish" environment that has salt, but not as much as the ocean.

Green spotted puffers, some gobys, monos. Some fish can be either fw or brackisk water like mollies for example.
