MODIFICATION OF MARINE BENTHOS BY TRAWLING: TOWARD A GENERALIZATION FOR THE DEEP OCEAN?
Anthropogenic disturbance of deep-sea benthic systems, especially by fish- ing, has increased markedly in the last 40 years. Deep-sea mining and extraction of fossil fuels can occur at extraordinary
First records of egg masses of Nototodarus gouldi McCoy, 1888 (Mollusca: Cephalopoda: Ommastrephidae), with comments on egg‐mass susceptibility to damage by fisheries trawl
Abstract The egg mass and embryos of the ommastrephid squid Nototodarus gouldi McCoy, 1888 are reported for the first time, their identity confirmed by mitochondrial 16S rDNA sequence determination.
Stomach contents of long‐finned pilot whales, Globicephala melas, mass‐stranded on Farewell Spit, Golden Bay in 2005 and 2008
TLDR
New data are reported on the diet of the long‐finned pilot whale, Globicephala melas, based on stomach contents recovered from whales involved in a mass stranding on Farewell Spit, Golden Bay, South Island, on 23 January 2008, highlighting the importance of the use of species‐specific regression equations for reconstructing both cephalopod mantle length and biomass from lower beak remains in dietary studies.
First report on the stomach contents of long‐finned pilot whales, Globicephala melas, stranded in New Zealand
TLDR
Stomach contents of the long‐finned pilot whale, Globicephala melas, are reported for the first time from New Zealand waters and reveal a diet comprised exclusively of cephalopods.
Gut contents of a giant squid Architeuthis dux (Cephalopoda: Oegopsida) from New Zealand waters
Abstract New diet information for the giant squid (Architeuthis dux) is presented based on the identification of substantial identifiable prey items recovered from the gut contents of a specimen
The nomenclatural status, ontogeny and morphology of Pholidoteuthis massyae (Pfeffer, 1912) new comb (Cephalopoda: Pholidoteuthidae)
TLDR
A conjectural account of the mechanics of mating in P. massyae is provided based on the nature of spermatophore insertion in the female mantle, and modification to the terminal region of the male’s genital apparatus.
