Abstract: Fish as one of the most important groups of vertebrates, during its development and evolution, opsins plays an important role in the visual image formation, regulation biological clock, circadian rhythm and so on. In terms of whether they are directly involved in visual imaging, fish opsins are divided into two categories: visual protein and non-visual protein. We reviewed progresses in fish opsins biology, including the composition, classification, distribution, physiological function, and visual protein gene of fish opsins, providing information to the further study into molecular mechanism of fish visual perception and the theoretical basis for the protection and utilization of fish resources.
