Zaproridae is represented by a single extant member, Zaprora silenus Jordan, the prowfish (Nelson et al., 2016). This species is broadly distributed in the North Pacific, from the northern Bering Sea to southern California, U.S.A., in the east, and Hokkaido, Japan, in the west (Mecklenburg et al., 2016). The prowfish is a marine fish: adults are demersal on the continental shelf and the upper slope to a depth of 800 m, whereas juveniles are pelagic (Tokranov, 1999; Mecklenburg, 2003). Pelagic… 
Basking shark remains (Lamniformes, Cetorhinidae) from the Miocene of South Korea
Recent basking sharks (Cetorhinidae) are plankton-feeders, filtering huge volumes of water through their gills (Compagno et al., 2005). In the fossil state, they are represented by teeth, gill

Osteology of the prowfish, Zaprora silenus (Cottiformes: Zoarcoidei: Zaproridae)
TLDR
The results contradict the findings of previous authors in the structure of the pharyngeal teeth, presence of the pelvic girdle, and the placement of the first dorsal pterygiophore, but indicate that the prowfish is probably most closely related to at least some members of the Stichaeidae.

TLDR
A new species of stichaeid fish referable to the genus Lumpenopsis Soldatov is described based on two specimens from Southern California based on evidence of vomerine and palatine teeth in the Y-Prickleback and Allolumpenus Hubbs and Schultz is considered a junior synonym.
