Summary This paper provides data on age, growth and diet of the bluemouth rockfish, Helicolenus dactylopterus dactylopterus (Scorpaenidae), central Mediterranean Sea. Estimated by otolith readings, ages ranged from 0 to 21 years. Parameters of the von Bertalanffy growth curves were Linf = 26.1 cm, k = 0.14 year−1, t0 = −1.92 years and the growth performance index was Φ = 1.98. The weight-length relationship, W = 0.016 TL2.99; R2 = 0.99, described an isometric growth of the species. This… Expand

Feeding habits of the bluemouth, Helicolenus dactylopterus dactylopterus (Delaroche, 1809) (Pisces: Sebastidae) in the Portuguese coast
In order to investigate the feeding habits of Helicolenus dactylopterusdactylopterus along the continental Portuguese coast, a total of 619 individuals were sampled of which 60% contained food inExpand
Trophic habits of the blackbelly rockfish, Helicolenus dactylopterus (Osteichthyes, Scorpaeniformes) in the Sardinian Channel
TLDR
Feeding habits of Helicolenus dactylopterus in the Sardinian waters were analysed to provide information on the feeding habits by examining specimens caught in this area and found that blackbelly rockfish selected preys according to the size of specimens. Expand
Life history parameters as possible discriminators of bluemouth Helicolenus dactylopterus (Delaroche, 1809) populations in Portuguese waters
TLDR
The results of this study will provide a comprehensive understanding of this species life history and presented useful evidence that can support the presence of different populations in the Portuguese waters. Expand
Feeding of the deep-water fish Helicolenus dactylopterus (Delaroche, 1809) in different habitats: from muddy bottoms to cold-water coral habitats
TLDR
The first documentation of the trophic spectrum of the deep-water teleost fish Helicolenus dactylopterus in two basins of the central Mediterranean is presented and the blackbelly rosefish shows a different diet depending on the habitat in which it lives. Expand
Regional differences in the feeding of the ambush predator Neosebastes pandus and comparisons of diets in the Scorpaenidae, Triglidae and Platycephalidae.
TLDR
Meta-analysis of the diets of 49 species of scorpaenid, triglid and platycephalid revealed that they feed predominantly on teleosts and large crustaceans, reflecting morphological changes that allow bigger fish to capture and ingest larger, more mobile prey. Expand
Interactions between fish species on seamount coral habitat
TLDR
The behaviour of the scorpionfish Helicolenus dactylopterus and Pontinus kuhlii towards the zooplanktivores Anthias anthias and Callanthias ruber are described from rare in situ ROV observations, representing a possible linkage between the pelagic and the benthic realm. Expand
Structure and connectivity of bluemouth, Helicolenus dactylopterus, populations in the NE Atlantic and Mediterranean
Abstract The bluemouth, Helicolenus dactylopterus (Delaroche 1809), is a marine demersal fish that is widely distributed in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean. It is targeted by longline fisheriesExpand
Age and growth of the robust tonguefish Cynoglossus robustus in the Seto Inland Sea, Japan
This study provides data on the age and growth of the robust tonguefish, Cynoglossus robustus in the western part of the Hiuchi-Nada Sea in the Seto Inland Sea, Japan. Fish samples consisting of 299Expand
Exploring composition and behaviour of fish fauna byin situobservations in the Bari Canyon (Southern Adriatic Sea, Central Mediterranean)
TLDR
This study represents the first in situ documentation, at very low impact, of the fish fauna in the Bari Canyon, providing new insights into its small scale distribution and behaviour, as well as indicating that this canyon could act as a refuge area for species that are vulnerable to fishing on the open slope.

Age and growth of blue-mouth, Helicolenus dactylopterus (Osteichthyes: Scorpaenidae), in the western Mediterranean
TLDR
Age and growth of this species were determined for two different areas, the Alboran Sea and the Balearic Sea, characterised by distinct oceanographic and geomorphological conditions, which showed higher differences between sexes than between areas. Expand
Age estimation, growth, maturity, and distribution of the bluemouth rockfish Helicolenus d. dactylopterus (Delaroche 1809) from the Rockall Trough
This paper presents data on the age, growth, maturity, and distribution of Helicolenus d. dactylopterus (Delaroche 1809) from the Rockall Trough area. The results are based on a series of deep-waterExpand
Age and growth of bluemouth, Helicolenus dactylopterus (Delaroche, 1809) from the Azores
TLDR
The age and growth of the Helicolenus dactylopterus in the Azorean waters were studied using whole and sliced otolith readings, finding slicing otoliths were found easier to read, regardless of TL or age. Expand
Distribution and population structure of the rockfish Helicolenus dactylopterus (Pisces: Scorpaenidae) in the western Mediterranean
The distribution and spatio–temporal variation of Helicolenus dactylopterus (Pisces: Scorpaenidae) population was studied from 816 bottom trawls developed along the Iberian coast. MultifactorExpand
TROPHIC RELATIONSHIPS AMONG DEMERSAL FISHES IN A COASTAL AREA OF THE GULF OF MAINE 1
TLDR
Food resource utilization was investigated among eight demersal fish species investigated over a 3-month period in an area of Johns Bay, Maine, and it is indicated that resource partitioning by prey size is related to different mouth morphologies for closely related species (winter flounder, yellowtail flounders, windowpane), and that unrelated species with similar Mouth morphologies may overlap in prey size use. Expand
Confirmation of longevity in Sebastes diploproa (Pisces: Scorpaenidae) from 210Pb/226Ra measurements in otoliths
TLDR
Estimates of longevity in the genus Sebastes near 80 yr are confirmed because the magnitude of the 210Pb/226Ra radioactive disequilibrium in each otolith group, when compared to the number of growth-Zones and the otolith weight histories derived with the two techniques, identifies the growth-zones revealed by otolith sections as annual features.

AGE ESTIMATION AND GROWTH OF SOME DEEP-SEA FISH FROM THE NORTHEAST ATLANTIC OCEAN
Age is a necessary parameter used in population dynamics to assess the state of exploited resources. This parameter is poorly known for most deep-sea species (depth!>!400!m). This work focused on ageExpand
Fish Bulletin 152. Food Habits of Albacore, Bluefin Tuna, and Bonito In California Waters
TLDR
The study indicates the prominent forage for bluefin tuna, bonito, and albacore in California waters is the northern anchovy, Engraulis mordax. Expand
Crustacean fishery with bottom traps in an area of the southern Tyrrhenian Sea: species composition, abundance and biomass
TLDR
Spring season yielded the best catches in both areas, showing the highest values for both abundance and biomass, and Plesionika edwardsii was the most important species, recorded in the whole bathymetric range investigated; Nephrops norvegicus was significantly higher in terms of biomass in the unexploited area.
