A brief survey of the mesopelagic
fishes of the Gulf of Alaska.
Reproductive system and the spermatophoric reaction of the mesopelagic
squid Octopoteuthis sicula (Ruppell, 1844) (Cephalopoda: Octopoteuthidae) from southern African waters.
Abstract: We compared the geographic distribution of groups of chondrychthid fishes of two physically proximal, although geographically different, regions that include the Juan Fernandez seamounts and the central Chilean continental slope, both sampled at mesopelagic
and mesobenthonic depths.
3) There are some exceptions in terms of Antarctic krill or the mesopelagic
fishes, but these would be anything except traditional fisheries.
Larvae were separated into three ontogenetic groups according to the notochord flexion state (preflexion, flexion and postflexion) and classified as coastal or oceanic (coastal, epipelagic, mesopelagic
and demersal) according to the adult fish habitat following the classification given by Moser & Ahlstrom (1996).
2008) described the behavior of a tagged Blainville's beaked whale in the Bahamas that appeared to provoke a schooling reaction in mesopelagic
prey that resulted in a school of prey up to 4 m in diameter and created an opportunity for the whale to more easily capture those prey.
macrocephala lack the pigment cell that is characteristic of most epipelagic and mesopelagic
chaetognaths (Goto et al.
Profiles of ectoenzymes in the Indian Ocean: phenomena of phosphatase activity in the mesopelagic
In the TEP assemblages, the tropical mesopelagic
Vinciguerria lucetia and Diogenicthys laternatus (Garman) species dominate the transition region in winter; while the neritic pelagic, Bregmaceros bathymaster, dominates the "coastaloceanic" assemblage in autumn at Cabo Corrientes region (Leon-Chavez et al.
In situ video observations of two manefishes (Perciformes: Caristiidae) in the mesopelagic
zone of the northern Gulf of Mexico.
Comparative study of the spectral sensitivities of mesopelagic
The feeding habits of four species of mesopelagic
fishes from northern Chile are described: Triphoturus mexicanus, Diogenichtys atlanticus, Vinciguerria lucetia and Cyclothone acclinidens.
