Feeding habits of three dominant myctophid fishes, Diaphus theta, Stenobrachius leucopsarus and S. nannochir, in the subarctic and transitional waters of the western North Pacific
TLDR
The vertical migratory component of S. leucopsarus showed a significant diel feeding periodicity, feeding on euphausiids, copepods, and amphipods from dusk to midnight, while the non-migratory component did not feed actively at nighttime, and had a high frequency of empty stomachs. Expand
Diel vertical migration of myctophid fishes (Family Myctophidae) in the transitional waters of the western North Pacific
The diel vertical migration patterns of adult myctophid fishes were determined in the transitional waters of the western North Pacific off Japan, using day–night sampling from 20 to 700 m depths withExpand
Seasonal variation of horizontal material transport through the eastern channel of the Tsushima Straits
We conducted hydrographic observations ten times in the Tsushima Strait to reveal seasonal variations of horizontal material transports such as of heat, freshwater, chlorophyll a, and dissolvedExpand
Shrinkage in the Body Length of Myctophid Fish (Diaphus Slender-Type spp.) Larvae with Various Preservatives
Abstract There was significant shrinkage in the body lengths of larvae of the myctophid fish Diaphus slender-type spp. for the first two weeks after they were preserved in 5% and 10% formalin, 70%Expand
Age and growth of lanternfishes, Symbolophorus californiensis and Ceratoscopelus warmingii (Myctophidae), in the Kuroshio–Oyashio Transition Zone
TLDR
Growth of these two lanternfishes was faster than that of other lanternfishing in previous studies but considerably slower than thatOf Japanese sardine and anchovy distributed in the Kuroshio–Oyashio Transition Zone, temperature and prey availability are discussed in relation to this difference in growth rate. Expand
Validation of daily otolith increment formation in the larval myctophid fish Diaphus slender-type spp.
TLDR
Results indicate that otolith increments are formed daily, and that the incremental zone began after midnight and took place throughout the day, and the discontinuous zone was formed only around midnight. Expand
Growth of larval and juvenile Diaphus theta (Pisces: Myctophidae) in the transitional waters of the western North Pacific
TLDR
The slow growth rate and long period of larval stage of D. theta would be the life history pattern of high-latitudinal species adapted to a low-temperature habitat. Expand
Chemical composition of three dominant myctophid fish, Diaphus theta, Stenobrachius leucopsarus, and S. nannochir, in the subarctic and transition waters of the western North Pacific
Water, carbon, and nitrogen contents were analysed in both juvenile and adult specimens of Diaphus theta, Stenobrachius leucopsarus, and S. nannochir, which are the dominant myctophid species in theExpand
Diel vertical migration of squid in the warm core ring and cold water masses in the transition region of the western North Pacific
We examined the diel vertical migration of squid (dorsal mantle length 21 to 490 mm) in warm core ring (WCR) and cold water mass (CW) areas in the transition region of the western North Pacific. AExpand
Night-time vertical distribution and abundance of small epipelagic and mesopelagic fishes in the upper 100 m layer of the Kuroshio-Oyashio Transition Zone in Spring
In order to simultaneously compare vertical distributions of small pelagic fishes and mesopelagic fishes during the night in the upper 100 m, one oblique and 11 horizontal tows of largesized (openingExpand
