Tautoga ontis and Lycodes reticulatus, in Labridae
and Zoarcidae, respectively, exhibited Hb polymerization (Table 1), while Ctenolabrus rupestris and Zoarces americanus, in the same two families, did not exhibit the trait (Table 2).
En este sentido, los invertebrados es un componente que representa una parte integral en la dinamica de nutrientes y redes troficas, siendo la fuente alimenticia para un gran numero de familias de peces como Balistidae, Cirrhitidae, Haemuldae, Lutjanidae, Labridae
y Serranidae (Enochs & Hockensmith; 2008).
Benefits of heterospecific foraging by the Caribbean wrasse, Halichoeres garnoti (Pisces: Labridae
Napoleon wrasse is one of the largest reef fish and the biggest of the wrasse family, Labridae
. It has thick lips and a bulbous hump on the forehead.
Feeding habit of Semicossyphus maculatus (Labridae
) in coastal waters of Iquique in northern Chile.
Home range and habitat utilization of adult California Sheephead, Semieossyphuspulcher (Labridae
), in a temperate no-take marine reserve.
Nectobenthic fish (Labridae
) were consumed predominantly in May, while sandy bottom fishes (flatfish) appear only during summer (Fig.
Taxa in the small fish category were cardinalfish (Apogon spp.); damselfish (Chromis spp.); small sea basses (Serranidae), including anthiids (Anthiinae); wrasses (Halichoeres spp.); and parrotfish (Labridae
Evidence of size-selective fishing mortality from an age and growth study of hogfish (Labridae
: Lachnolaimus maximus), a hermaphroditic reef fish.
The study revealed that the fishery is composed of small-scale commodity producers who use labor intensive, low technology capital to catch high valued species such as queen conch, Strombus gigas; spiny lobster, Panulirus argus; various reef-fish (Labridae
, Scaridae, Lutjanidae), and octopus (Octopodidae).
