A biorobotic adhesive disc for underwater hitchhiking inspired by the remora suckerfish
We present the design of a biologically analogous, multimaterial biomimetic remora disc based on detailed morphological and kinematic investigations of the slender sharksucker. Expand
Skating by: low energetic costs of swimming in a batoid fish
ABSTRACT We quantify the oxygen consumption rates and cost of transport (COT) of a benthic batoid fish, the little skate, Leucoraja erinacea, at three swimming speeds. We report that this species hasExpand
High postural costs and anaerobic metabolism during swimming support the hypothesis of a U-shaped metabolism–speed curve in fishes
Significance Hydrodynamic theory predicts that the energetic costs required for fishes to swim should vary with speed according to a U-shaped curve, with an expected energetic minimum at intermediateExpand
Revision of the Stoplight Loosejaw Genus Malacosteus (Teleostei: Stomiidae: Malacosteinae), with Description of a New Species from the Temperate Southern Hemisphere and Indian Ocean
Abstract Species of the deep-sea stomiid fish genus Malacosteus are readily diagnosed within the Malacosteinae by the presence of a single round nostril on each side of the snout, palatine bonesExpand
Exploring feeding behaviour in deep-sea dragonfishes (Teleostei: Stomiidae): jaw biomechanics and functional significance of a loosejaw
Deep-sea dragonfishes (family Stomiidae) possess spectacular morphologies adapted to capturing large prey items in a seascape largely devoid of biomass, including large fang-like teeth set onExpand
Skin stiffness in ray‐finned fishes: Contrasting material properties between species and body regions
The skin of aquatic vertebrates surrounds all the mechanical lineages of the body and must, therefore, play an important role in locomotion. A cross‐woven collagenous dermal design has convergedExpand

Four genera of the teleost family Stomiidae, the loosejaw dragonfishes, possess accessory cephalic photophores (AOs). Species of three genera, Aristostomias, Malacosteus, and Pachystomias, areExpand
Revision of Indo-Pacific Species of the Loosejaw Dragonfish Genus Photostomias (Teleostei: Stomiidae: Malacosteinae)
Abstract Several studies of the ecology of mesopelagic fishes off Hawaii published in the 1970s and 1980s reported the existence of as many as two undescribed species in the Pacific Ocean. DiagnosedExpand
First Records of Rare Mesopelagic Fishes from the Gulf of Alaska
Abstract Two brief midwater trawl surveys were conducted at depths of 250–1000 m in the Gulf of Alaska in April 2007 and March 2008, during which several species were recorded for the 1st time fromExpand
Comparative neurochemical features of the innervation patterns of the gut of the basal actinopterygian, Lepisosteus oculatus, and the euteleost, Clarias batrachus
The structure and physiology of enteric system are very similar in all classes of vertebrates, although they have been investigated only occasionally in non-mammalian vertebrates. Very little isExpand
