Scrawled filefish Aluterus scriptus (55.5 cm total length) was recorded for the first time off the Argentinean coast. The presence of this tropical specimen was correlated with warm sea surface temperatures at the time it was caught. Photographs and morphometrics of the specimen are provided. 
First record of Pomacanthus paru in the Río de la Plata, Argentina
The first record of an adult male of French angelfish Pomacanthus paru (total length = 295 mm; total weight = 855.3 g) in the coastal waters of Rio de la Plata mouth, Argentina is here reported. ThisExpand
Aluterus monoceros (Acanthopterygii, Tetraodontiformes) southwards distribution range extension in Argentine waters
The presence of Aluterus monoceros (Linnaeus, 1758) in Mar del Plata, Argentina (38° S) was registered over 40 years ago. This new report extends its southernmost distribution limit to 39° SExpand
First fossil occurrence of a filefish (Tetraodontiformes; Monacanthidae) in Asia, from the Middle Miocene in Nagano Prefecture, central Japan.
These fossil records suggest that the genus Aluterus had already been derived and was widely distributed during the Middle Miocene with taxa closely resembling Recent species, and is consistent with the influence of warm water currents suggested by other fossils. Expand
Extensión del límite austral de distribución de tres especies de peces óseos tropicales en la costa de la Provincia de Buenos Aires, Argentina
Using sea surface temperature satellite images, a southward warm circulation event from Brazil is shown as a putative factor to explain the occurrence of these bony fishes in the CBAP. Expand
Genetic and morphometric analyzes of Paralichthys species confirm the presence of P. brasiliensis in the Uruguayan waters
Molecular and morphological analysis confirmed for the first time the presence of P. brasiliensis in Uruguayan and Rio de la Plata shelf waters and extends its known distribution area further south. Expand
Tamoya haplonema (Cnidaria: Cubozoa) from Uruguayan and adjacent waters: oceanographic context of new and historical findings
It would be reasonable to predict a future southward shift in the latitudinal distribution of T. haplonema along Uruguayan coastal waters from observed increasing frequency of positive temperature anomalies. Expand
Climate Variability Effects on Uruguayan Whitemouth Croaker and Striped Weakfish Fisheries
Analysis of climatic drivers effects on Micropogonias furnieri and Cynoscion guatucupa fisheries of Uruguay. Climatic and fisheries variables from the period 1982-2018 were analysed. StatisticalExpand
Shifts in the abundance and distribution of shallow water fish fauna on the southeastern Brazilian coast: a response to climate change
The temperature in the South Atlantic underwent an increase from 1948 to 2016, and the Brazilian coast is very likely suffering from climate change. We examined temporal shifts in the abundance ofExpand
Evidence of ocean warming in Uruguay's fisheries landings: the mean temperature of the catch approach
Distribution, abundance and life history traits of marine fish and invertebrates are increasingly affected by ocean warming. Consequently, landings of traditional fisheries and their relative speciesExpand
Effects of fishing, market price, and climate on two South American clam species
Coastal shellfish are being threatened by several drivers acting at multiple temporal and spatial scales, including fishing, climate, and globalization of markets. We evaluated large- scale andExpand


Occurrence of Trachinotus carolinus (Carangidae) in Laguna Costera Mar Chiquita, with comments on other occasionally recorded fishes in Argentinean waters
Trachinotus carolinus (Linnaeus, 1766) is reported for the first time from northern Argentinean waters, substantially farther south than its usual area of occurrence. Morphometric and meristicExpand
Stellifer rastrifer (Pisces: Sciaenidae): first Uruguayan records and a 1200 km range extension
Stellifer rastrifer, a coastal fish species that inhabits the tropical and south-western Atlantic Ocean is reported for the first time from the Uruguayan coast. Its geographic distribution range isExpand
Ten new records of reef fish on the coast of Santa Catarina State, Brazil
We present a list with 10 new records of reef fish on the coast of Santa Catarina State, the southernmost site of tropical reef fish occurrence on the Brazilian coast. We also comment on theExpand
The reef fish assemblage of the Laje de Santos Marine State Park, Southwestern Atlantic: annotated checklist with comments on abundance, distribution, trophic structure, symbiotic associations, and conservation
A check-list containing 196 species of reef fishes recorded at the Laje de Santos Marine State Park is presented, finding that most of them occur along the tropical western Atlantic or occur on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Expand
