Twenty-nine species from 11 genera of Myctophidae were taken in daytime midwater and bottom trawl hauls off eastern Brazil (11 o -22 o S). Trawls were performed aboard the French R/V Thalassa to depths from 19 to 2271 m, including samples from shelf, slope and in the vicinity of oceanic banks and seamounts. Diaphus garmani was the most abundant species, accounting for 84% of all identified individuals and with four other species (D. dumerilii, D. brachycephalus, D. perspicillatus and Myctophum… Expand

Mesopelagic fish distribution in the southwest Atlantic in relation to water masses
Abstract A total of 150 mesopelagic fishes, representing 23 families and 47 species, were collected at 18 fishing stations occupied during four research cruises between 1988 and 1995. The mainExpand
Occurrence and distribution of larval lanternfish (Myctophidae) from the southwest Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
There was no difference in the myctophid community among the coastal, oceanic and seamount regions it was significantly different during the three seasons but during the spring and autumn Hygophum reinhardtii was the species while in the winter there were more L. guentheri. Expand
Distribution patterns of larval myctophid fish assemblages in the subtropical–tropical waters of the western North Pacific
TLDR
Larvae of the same species were distributed at lower depths in the SCC–NEC area than in the KCC area, which corresponded to the abundance of chlorophyll a, which would reflect abundance of prey organisms such as copepod nauplii andCopepodites. Expand
Upper-slope distributions of oceanic lanternfishes (family: Myctophidae)
TLDR
The data sets suggest that both the depth and the regional temperature structure of the water column effect the upper slope distributions of oceanic myctophids, and long-slope, ribbon distribution patterns (generalized down-sl slope zonation) in myCTophids may therefore be localized artifacts produced by the interaction of these factors.

SOME ASPECTS OF THE ECOLOGY OF LANTERNFISHES (MYCTOPHIDAE) IN THE PACIFIC OCEAN NEAR HAWAIl
TLDR
Myctophids and other vertically migrating micronekton appear to be very important in the trophic structure of the tropical open ocean and probably account for most of the consumption of zooplankton. Expand
Composition, distribution, and diversity of pelagic fishes around the Canary Islands, Eastern Central Atlantic
TLDR
Data indicate intense horizontal migrations of mesopelagic fishes (mainly Myctophidae) into the neritic realm and increased interactions between coastal and oceanic habitats. Expand
Temporal and spatial patterns of lanternfish (family Myctophidae) communities associated with a warm-core eddy
TLDR
The results suggest that the biological contrasts between a warm-core eddy and surrounding water masses are largely a function of the degree of the eddies' physical isolation after separation from the East Australian Current and that natural seasonal variations in myctophid communities may overshadow more subtle successional changes inside an eddy as the eddy ages. Expand
Feeding ecology of five fishes from the mid-slope micronekton community off southern Tasmania, Australia
TLDR
Differences in the timing and duration of feeding corresponded to differences in their spatio-temporal overlap with key prey, and the vertical flux of near-surface plankton production to the mesopelagic food web is based primarily on diel feeding in the upper water column. Expand
