Mesopelagic fish assemblages were investigated in the Polar Frontal Zone off the Kerguelen Islands during summer 1995, in parallel with a king penguin tracking study. During the day, the upper offshore water layers (0–200 m) have low potential prey diversity and abundance with only three fish species: a lanternfish, Krefftichthys anderssoni, a member of the Muraenolepididae, Muraenolepis marmoratus, and the early stages of the nototheniid, Lepidonotothen squamifrons. The mesopelagic fish… CONTINUE READING
