At the Portuguese continental slope, rabbitfish, Chimaera monstrosa, is distributed at depths greater than 200 m. The feeding strategy of this species was investigated based on the analysis of digestive tract contents from specimens captured during a bottom trawl survey held along the southern continental slope of Portugal. The diet of rabbitfish is high in diversity and with differences in composition according to predator size groups. Specimens smaller than 22 cm (pre-supracaudal fin length… 
Feeding ecology and trophic level of Chimaera monstrosa Linnaeus, 1758 (Holocephali: Chimaeridae) in the Eastern Mediterranean
TLDR
The feeding ecology of Chimaera monstrosa at a depth of 550 m was studied off Sığacık Bay, Eastern Mediterranean, in 2008 and found that Crustacea and Mollusca were the most abundant prey groups.
Feeding ecology and trophic position of three sympatric demersal chondrichthyans in the northwestern Mediterranean
TLDR
The results illustrate the utility of using complementary approaches that provide information about the feeding behaviour at short (stomach content) and long-term scales (stable isotopes) which could allow more efficient monitoring of marine food-web changes in the study area.
Feeding habits of the cockfish, Callorhinchus callorynchus (Holocephali: Callorhinchidae) from off northern Argentina
TLDR
Callorhinchus callorynchus showed a behavior of crushing hard prey, mainly on bivalves, brachyuran, gastropods and anomuran crabs, which indicates this species is able to consume larger bivalve as it grows.
Dietary comparisons of six skate species (Rajidae) in south-eastern Australian waters
TLDR
Although ANOSIM found significant differences in dietary composition between species within groups, there was some overlap in prey species amongst co-existing skates, which suggests that there is some degree of resource partitioning amongst them.
Feeding habits and niche separation among the deep-sea chimaeroid fishes Harriotta raleighana, Hydrolagus bemisi and Hydrolagus novaezealandiae
TLDR
Generalised additive models indicated that depth was the most important spatial predictor of research trawl survey catch rates, and depth separation was most pronounced between H. raleighana and H. novaezealandiae.
First record of the opal chimaera Chimaera opalescens (Holocephali: Chimaeridae) and revision of the occurrence of the rabbitfish Chimaera monstrosa in the Azores waters.
TLDR
It is concluded that the most likely scenario is that C. monstrosa is absent from the Azores and past records of that species in the region are most likely misidentifications of C. opalescens.
Occurrence of the Rabbitfish (Chimaera monstrosa Linnaeus, 1758) in the Deep Seas of Northern Cyprus, Mediterranean Sea
Rabbitfish ( Chimaera monstrosa , Linnaeus 1758), which is a deep-sea holocephalan mostly seen between 200-1000 m in depth. The specimen of C. monstrosa was caught in the deep-seas of Northern Cyprus
Addressing the aquatic vertebrate community of Vågsfjorden 2019 with the use of Environmental DNA
TLDR
Using eDNA methodology, a northern Norwegian fjord was investigated in order to detect the species richness throughout a year at two depths and an attempt was made to explain the variation of eDNA reads by correlating it to biotic and abiotic factors.
The First Record of the Chimaeroid Genus Edaphodon (Chondrichthyes, Holocephali) from Antarctica (Snow Hill Island Formation, Late Cretaceous, James Ross Island)
ABSTRACT A new species of an edaphodontid holocephalian, Edaphodon snowhillensis, sp. nov., is described based on a complete dentition collected in the late Campanian Herbert Sound Member of the
First Description of a Palatal Organ in Chimaera monstrosa (Chondrichthyes, Holocephali)
TLDR
It is described for the first time a well evidenced structure localized in the palate of the chimaeroid Chimaera monstrosa, here named a palatal organ (PO), characterized by dense connective tissue with abundant collagen and elastic fibers and no muscular tissue.

Diets of the sharks and chimaeroids of the Rockall Trough, northeastern Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
The sharks and chimaeroids were studied through the deployment of demersal trawls at successive 250 m depth intervals in the Rockall Trough to the west of Scotland and Ireland during the period 1975 to 1981, finding that these fish divide into 3 trophic groups.
Distribution and abundance of fish in deep-sea coral habitats
TLDR
Redfish affinity to the reefs seems primarily to be related to the physical structure offered by the reefs, and fish caught in coral habitats tended to be larger in size than in non-coral habitats.

Ecological Studies
TLDR
On the savannah lands in the vicinity Cassia siamea is the dominant tree, while Andropogon brevifolius, species of Scitamineæ, and Hibiscus Abelmoschus are conspicuous amongst the ground vegetation.
Chitinolytic enzymes in the digestive system of marine fishes
TLDR
It could be concluded that marine fishes with diets consisting largely of chitinous invertebrates may display high chitinase and NAGase activities in their digestive system; however, only low chit inase activity was found in the intestine of the cyclostome Myxine glutinosa.
A new approach to graphical analysis of feeding strategy from stomach contents data—modification of the Costello (1990) method
TLDR
A modification of the graphical Costello method is proposed for the analysis of stomach contents data that may be particularly well-suited for the examination of predictions made from optimal foraging, competition and niche theories.
