Ecoregionalization of myctophid fish in the Indian sector of the Southern Ocean: results from generalized dissimilarity models
The Southern Ocean is delimited by major frontal zones which influence pelagic life at the spatial macroscale. There is a sharp ecological segregation of pelagic fish that inhabit this ocean withExpand
Composition of piscine prey in the diet of large pelagic fish in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean
The stomach contents of seven pelagic fish species collected by longline in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean were examined, finding that the choice of prey fish was very similar between bigeye tuna and swordfish, yellowfin tuna and Swordfish,yellowfin tunaand dolphinfish, and big eye tuna and pelagic thresher.

The actinopterygian diversity of the CEAMARC cruises: Barcoding and molecular taxonomy as a multi-level tool for new findings
This large-scale project underlines the need for further taxonomic work in antarctic actinopterygians through Identification through sequence similarity using the Barcode of Life Data System (BOLD) works for some groups, but is hampered by the incompleteness of the taxonomic coverage for antarctica teleosts.

Isotopic niches of fishes in coastal, neritic and oceanic waters off Adélie land, Antarctica
The concept of isotopic niche is a powerful tool to investigate various aspects of the ecological niche of Antarctic fishes, thus complementing the use of other conventional and non-conventional approaches. Expand
Transition from endogenous to exogenous nutritional sources in larval Black Sea turbot Psetta maxima
Based on comparisons with early life stage features of other marine species, the turbot larvae were shown to possess the following characteristics: (i) oil globule remaining for a long period, resulting in an extended mixed feeding period; and (ii) feeding rate extremely high in larvae immediately following final absorption of the oil globules.

Spatial distribution of pelagic fish off Adelie and George V Land, East Antarctica in the austral summer 2008
Abstract Pelagic fish assemblages and community structure were examined along longitudinal and meridian transects off Adelie and George V Land, East Antarctica, in the austral summer 2008. Fish wereExpand
Size distribution of meso- and bathypelagic fish in the Dumont d'Urville Sea (East Antarctica) during the CEAMARC surveys
Abstract The pelagic fish community of the Dumont d’Urville Sea (East Antarctica) was investigated during the 2008 austral-summer using IYGPT (International Young Gadoid Pelagic Trawl) samples takenExpand
Widespread freshening in the Seasonal Ice Zone near 140°E off the Adélie Land Coast, Antarctica, from 1994 to 2012
Long-term water mass changes during 1994-2012 are examined from nine repeat hydrographic sections in the Seasonal Ice Zone along 140°E, off Antarctica. Significant freshening trends are detectedExpand
Ontogenic changes in the feeding ecology of the early life stages of the Antarctic silverfish (Pleuragramma antarcticum) documented by stable isotopes and diet analysis in the Dumont d'Urville Sea
The feeding ecology of the notothenioid fish Pleuragramma antarcticum was studied in the Dumont d’Urville Sea (East Antarctica) near the French Antarctic station and indicated that larvae are omnivorous, feeding on phytoplankton (mainly diatoms) as well as on zooplankon species. Expand
