Four unusual masses of adhesive fish eggs surrounding limbs of the octocoral Primnoa sp. were collected in Seguam Pass in the Aleutian Island Archipelago at a depth of 397 m. The eggs contained embryos in the flexion stage of development. When dissected and cleared and stained, counts of dorsal and anal fin rays and vertebrae allowed identification of the(More)

Eggs were large with embryos most commonly in late flexion to postflexion stages. Based on meristic counts and collection localities, eggs were identified as Elassodiscus tremebundus,(More)

Identification of fish larvae in Arctic marine waters is problematic as descriptions of early-life-history stages exist for few species. Our goal in this study is to provide descriptions that enable researchers to distinguish larvae of righteye flounders (family Pleuronectidae) of the genus Limanda that are among the most abundant fishes and frequently(More)
