maximus, redfish Sebastes mentella, and four species of prickleback
fishes (Munilla-Moran & Sorbido-Rey, 1996a; Kim et al., 2014), is genetically programmed in the first days before hatching to use the glycogen in the yolk-sac, showing high activity and expression.

In West Coast Wild, these letters reveal both old and new beach treasures: xiphister is a prickleback
fish that breathes air, yellow is "the color of the sun" and 'z' is for "zone, the intertidal zone, where land and sea meet." In two-tothree sentences per letter, Hodge poetically describes creatures such as the velella velella: "like little blue sailboats, they float on the water and catch the wind with their sails." The back of the book contains an explanatory note and ideas for further research, but it might have been nice to also have a map to situate the area.
(2015), snake prickleback
, Lumpenus sagitta, (found in the Cook Inlet beluga diet), northern rock sole, Lepidopsetta polyxystra, (found in the eastern Bering Sea and Bristol Bay beluga diets), and shrimp (pink shrimp, Pandalus eous, and crangon shrimp, Crangon spp., found in all beluga stock diets), were very abundant and ubiquitous in the Esker Creek area and thus potentially eaten by beluga.

The monkeyface prickleback
(sometimes called an eel) is the most common catch of fishermen using the unusual angling technique known as poke-poling.

Another example from Tuktoyaktuk Harbour involved subsistence capture of two rare species, the nine-spine prickleback
(Pungitius laevis) and the wolf fish (Hoplias malabaricus), during regular subsistence fishing (Harwood et al., 2008).
Similarly, age estimates of a central California herbivorous fish, monkeyface prickleback
(Cebidichthys violaceus), are much higher than opaleye and halfmoon with a maximum age of 18 years (Marshall and Echeverria 1991).
Bryozoichthys lysimus (Jordan and Snyder 1902)--Nutcracker Prickleback
The three groups were starved for one week and then exposed for the first time to live juvenile specimens (1.7-3.8 cm length) of the monkey-face prickleback
(Cebidichthys violaceus), black prickleback
(Xiphister atropurpureus) or rock prickleback
(Xiphister mucosus), which were collected from the rocky intertidal at Hopkins Marine Station.
