Diadromous, amphidromous, potamodromous, oceanodromous. In a 1949 journal article, George S. Myers coined the inclusive term diadromous to refer to all fish that migrate between the sea and fresh water. Like the two well known terms, it was formed from classical Greek ([dia], “through”; and [dromous], “running”).
