was found is situated between the sandbanks Buiten Ratelen Oost Dyck (UTM 5674450 - 460236.7), on the French-Belgian border (Fig. 1). This station was investigated dur-ing a sampling campaign on August 20th (2003) with theresearch vessel ‘Zeeleeuw’. The sample was taken with arectangular neuston net (2m x 1m, 1mm mesh) fromwhich only the lower 50cm is immersed, thereby sam-pling the upper 50cm of the water column. Identificationsof the specimens, which were preserved in a 10% formal-dehyde…

Rafting seahorses: the presence of juvenile Hippocampus patagonicus in floating debris.
If rafting juveniles drift long distances beyond their original populations, they have the potential to form new populations, which may explain the wide distribution of H. patagonicus.
Two new species of seahorses (Syngnathidae, Hippocampus) from the Middle Miocene (Sarmatian) Coprolitic Horizon in Tunjice Hills, Slovenia: The oldest fossil record of seahorses
Abstract Two new and the only known extinct seahorse species Hippocampus sarmaticus and Hippocampus slovenicus are described from the Middle Miocene beds (Lower Sarmatian) in Slovenia, representing
The presence of the seahorse Hippocampus patagonicus in deep waters: additional evidence of the dispersive capacity of the species
This research presents a meta-analysing of the response of the immune systems to the presence of carbon dioxide in the fluid environment and its role in the build-up of infectious disease.
The ontogeny of habitat associations in the tropical tiger tail seahorse Hippocampus comes Cantor, 1850
It is suggested that H. comes experiences fitness trade-offs that vary with size; juveniles may associate with habitat that reduces predation, while larger individuals may use distinct microhabitat in reef zones to optimize reproductive success.
Past and present drivers of population structure in a small coastal fish, the European long snouted seahorse Hippocampus guttulatus
Findings suggest that conservation of genetic diversity in H. guttulatus may be aided by a network of marine protected areas (MPAs), implemented to conserve coastal habitats, but the species’ unusual life history and gamete retaining behaviours should be considered as part of management decisions including MPA design and fisheries management plans.
Past and present drivers of population structure in a small coastal fish , the European long snouted 1 seahorse Hippocampus guttulatus 2
14 The effective design of species conservation and management programs is reliant on information such as extant 15 geographic distribution, taxon-specific life-history characteristics, and the
Relative importance of ocean currents and fronts in population structures of marine fish: a lesson from the cryptic lineages of the Hippocampus mohnikei complex
We found that Hippocampus mohnikei, the most common seahorse in East Asia, includes three clades with 2.8%–7.3% pairwise differences in their DNA cytochrome b (mtDNA cyt b) sequences, and all the
A sedentary fish on the move: effects of displacement on long-snouted seahorse (Hippocampus guttulatus Cuvier) movement and habitat use
To understand how a sedentary fish responds to displacement and identify key habitat characteristics for that fish, we translocated long-snouted seahorses (Hippocampus guttulatus) within their
Seahorse Aquaculture, Biology and Conservation: Knowledge Gaps and Research Opportunities
It is suggested that further scientific studies are needed to better understand and manage the populations of the most heavily traded seahorse species, as well as the need to monitor their vulnerability to emerging pollutants and climate change.


A note on the status of indigenous species of sea horse
The status of the two indigenous species of sea horse, the British sea horse (spiny sea horse) ( Hippocampus ramulosus ) and the European sea horse (short snouted sea horse) ( Hippocampus hippocampus
Reproduction and food habits of the lined seahorse, Hippocampus erectus (Teleostei: Syngnathidae) of Chesapeake Bay, Virginia.
The reproductive and feeding biology of the lined seahorse, Hippocampus erectus, was studied in Chesapeake Bay, and the number of eggs/embryos and hydrated oocytes were better linearly correlated to total weight than to total length.
A general theory on fish aggregation to floating objects: An alternative to the meeting point hypothesis
It is thought that aggregation under floats may be the result of behaviour that has evolved to safeguard the survival of eggs, larvae and juvenile stages, during dispersion to other areas, as well as the meeting point hypothesis, which is applicable to one specific case, the tuna and tuna-like species.
