Abstract This paper is the first of a series describing the vertical distribution of midwater fishes in the eastern North Atlantic in areas approximately 10° of latitude apart near the 20° meridian. As such, it is concerned solely with collections made in 30°N, 23°W. The results are based primarily upon RMT 8 net samples collected using an opening-closing RMT 1+8 combination net. In all, 17,443 specimens were caught by RMT 8, divisible into 37 families, 66 genera with 98 species identified… Expand
Feeding ecology of three myctophid species at the Great Meteor Seamount (North-east Atlantic)
The feeding ecology of three abundant myctophid species was studied using individuals sampled at the Great Meteor Seamount during a cruise of RV “Meteor”, M42/3, in September 1998. Different habitatsExpand
Vertical distribution and feeding patterns of midwater fish in the central equatorial Atlantic II. Sternoptychidae
TLDR
All sternoptychid species investigated were planktivorous, feeding predominantly on copepods and ostracods, except for the largest size class, which preyed heavily on euphausiids and amphipods. Expand
VERTICAL DISTRIBUTION, DIEL VERTICAL MIGRATION, AND ABUNDANCE OF SOME MESOPELAGIC FISHES IN THE EASTERN SUBARCTIC PACIFIC OCEAN IN SUMMER 1
TLDR
The vertical distribution and migration characteristics of the numerically dominant species were determined, to document their feeding behavior, and to ascertain if the distribu­ tions of fish were in any way influenced by the distribution of their preferred prey. Expand
Studies on Atlantic halocyprid ostracods: their vertical distributions and community structure in the central gyre region along latitude 30°N from off Africa to Bermuda
Abstract The vertical ranges and abundances of halocyprid ostracods in the surface 2000m of the water column are compared for two localities in the North Atlantic in the vicinity of 30°N, 23°W andExpand
Vertical distribution and feeding patterns of midwater fish in the central equatorial Atlantic
TLDR
Stomachs of C. warmingii and Lepidophanes guentheri from daytime samples contained copepod species restricted to the upper 150 m of the water column, thereby confirming an extended vertical migration of predators. Expand
AND ABUNDANCE OF SOME MESOPELAGIC FISHES IN THE EASTERN SUBARCTIC PACIFIC OCEAN IN SUMMER
Vertical distributions ofmyctophid fishes and other components of the mesopelagic micronekton were determined during the summers of 1973-75 at two stations in the eastern subarctic Pacific Ocean.Expand
Reproduction, growth and vertical distribution of the meso- and bathypelagic fish Cyclothone atraria (Pisces: Gonostomatidae) in Sagami Bay, Central Japan
TLDR
Length-frequency analysis demonstrated that modal progressions could be followed until about 55 mm SL; however, no length mode that increases with time was observed at 30–35 mm SL, which corresponds to the size of sex reversal. Expand
Aspects of the Ecology of the Mesopelagic Fish Gonostoma elongatum (Gonostomatidae, Stomiiformes) in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico
TLDR
The Gonostoma elongatum species was a strong diel migrator, found from 25 to 325 m at night and from 425 to 725 m during the day with small fish occurring shallorver than large fish, rivalling the dominant species of myctophids in the Gulf of Mexico. Expand
VERTICAL DISTRIBUTION AND DEVELOPMENT OF LARVAL FISHES IN THE NORTH PACIFIC CENTRAL GYRE DURING SUMMER
TLDR
Abundance data are presented on the mesopelagic fish larvae taken in 60 opening/closing bongo net samples from the North Pacific central gyre in late summer, finding the majority of the species occurred within the mixed layer and upper thermocline and that each species had a characteristic depth distri­ bution. Expand
Comparative life histories of the meso- and bathypelagic fishes of the genus Cyclothone (Pisces: Gonostomatidae) in Sagami Bay, central Japan
TLDR
Similar patterns of changes in such reproductive variables along the depth gradient among different combinations of Cyclothone species at different localities support the hypothesis that shallow-living species would be able to accelerate their maturation, which results in higher intrinsic rate of population increase effectively under a fixed egg size.

TLDR
The community is composed mainly of tropical forms but its proportional composition is unique to the Gulf, and water mass structure and surface water characteristics are considered as determinants. Expand

TLDR
For several species of fish, a shift in behaviour was found: eggs and yolk-sac larvae are mainly missing from the uppermost layers, young post-larvae staying permanently close to the surface, and old larvae and juveniles performing diurnal vertical migrations. Expand

Morphological examination of the ovaries of 7 females indicate that first full maturation has not been reached in Argyripnus atlanticus Maul 1952, and development, geographic variation and habits of the species are discussed. Expand

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
