In addition to the species listed in Table 1, Johansen mentioned, in an unpublished manuscript, nine other species: broad whitefish (Coregonus nasus), sardine cisco (Coregonus sardinella), saffron cod (Eleginus gracilis), fourline snakeblenny (Eumesogrammus praecisus), fish doctor (Gymnelus viridis), polar eelpout (Lycodes turneri), hamecon (Artediellus scaber), Artedius sp.
The fourline snakeblenny, Arctic grayling, Arctic char, lake trout, ninespine stickleback, and Pacific sand lance are benthopelagic (species that float or swim just over the floor of the sea); the Pacific herring, sardine cisco, Arctic cisco, and capelin are pelagic-neritic (inhabiting shallow coastal waters over the continental shelf); and the polar cod is bathypelagic (occurring in the mid-waters below the level of light penetration, which, depending on the authors, may lie between 900 m and 4000 m).
The CAE made observations on and collected specimens of nine new fish species that had not been recorded previously in the western North American Arctic: polar cod, Greenland cod, Arctic sculpin, ribbed sculpin, tubenose poacher, saffron cod, fourline snakeblenny, hamecon, and twohorn sculpin (Walters, 1953, 1955).
