(Exocoetidae), tunas (Scombridae), the Louvar (Luvarus imperialis), and the Ocean Sunfish (Mola mola), as well as small mesopelagic species such as the Lowcrest Hatchetfish (Argyropelecus sladeni, Sternoptychidae) that become stranded on shore during storms.
Overall, twelve families were restricted to seagrass habitats: phycid hakes (Phycidae), toadfishes (Batrachiodidae), batfishes (Ogcocephalidae), flyingfishes
(Exocoetidae), cardinalfishes (Apogonidae), barracudas (Sphyraenidae), wrasses (Labridae), combtooth blennies (Blenniidae), mackerels (Scombridae), triggerfishes (Balistidae), boxfishes (Ostraciidae), and porcupinefishes (Diodontidae; Table 1).
Second, markets for and landings of flyingfishes appear to be expanding, and this part of the fishery should be examined.
Bulk weights of flyingfishes were also kept separate from the numbers of flyingfishes landed, but these weights were not converted to numbers of fish.
Ichimaru and Katsunori (1995) preferred the lapillus as a source of age data for two species of flyingfishes larvae (Cypselurus heterurus doederleini and Cypselurus hiraii) because increments were as clear as those in the sagittae, yet the lapilli did not require any preparation.
Otolith increment formation of flyingfishes larvae, Cypselurus heterurus doederleini and Cypselurus hiraii under rearing conditions.
Flyingfishes, epipelagic cephalopods, tetraodontiform fishes, several mesopelagic fishes, Auxis spp.
Epipelagic-cephalopod taxa were most important in the diet of the common dolphinfish caught east of 82[degrees]41'W and south of 1[degrees] 46'S, and flyingfishes were most important in the diet of those caught west of 81[degrees]W.
Florida's halfbeak fishery is highly selective, and only low numbers of flyingfishes (Exocoetidae) and needlefishes (Belonidae) are consistently caught as bycatch (Berkeley et al.
The only species frequently collected besides halfbeaks were Flyingfishes (Exocoetidae: Cypselurus and Parexocoetus) and needlefishes (Belonidae: Ablennes and Tylosaurus).
