Le sabre noir a fait l'objet de la plus ancienne peche commerciale en eaux profondes. Son histoire, longue de 150 ans dans les eaux de l'archipel de Madere, n'a cependant pas permis de deceler la presence de deux especes sympatriques: Aphanopus carbo Lowe, 1839 et A. intermedius Parin, 1983. L'explication de ce hiatus tient a la difficulte de separer les deux especes sur la base des seuls caracteres morphologiques externes. Or, l'emergence des activites de peche tant dans les eaux continentales…

Reproduction and growth of Aphanopus carbo and A. intermedius (Teleostei: Trichiuridae) in the northeastern Atlantic
Commercial fishery landings of the black scabbardfish, Aphanopus carbo, from the Madeira mid-water drifting longline fleet (northeastern Atlantic) were studied for 2 years within a Portuguese government programme for fishing management, revealing significant differences in age and growth in influencing the length-frequency distributions.
Records of some rare deep-sea fishes caught in the Lion, Susan, and Unicorn seamounts, off the archipelago of Madeira (east-central Atlantic)
A first approach is taken to the estimation of the length–weight relations of 11 deep-water, data-deficient species for which prior information, estimated from data collected, did not exist in FishBase and some new insights about the biology of Hoplostethus mediterraneus are presented.

: This review work analyses for the first time 114 fisheries research campaigns participated by the Canary Institute of Marine Sciences and framed in 42 research actions carried out between 1980 and
Black scabbardfish, Aphanopus carbo, in the northeast Atlantic: distribution and hypothetical migratory cycle
The biology, ecology, and dynamics of the deep-sea teleost black scabbardfish in the northeast Atlantic are reviewed. The black scabbardfish is a commercial bathypelagic species found in the NE


The use of internal otolith morphometrics for identification of haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) stocks on Georges Bank
Otoliths are crystalline structures composed of calcium carbonate and are ideal structures for use in fi sh stock identifi cation, containing a range of measurable characteristics including linear
Development of eleven microsatellite loci in the deep-sea black scabbardfish (Aphanopus carbo)
11 microsatellite loci primers in the bathypelagic black scabbardfish (Aphanopus carbo) are developed, a novelty for deep-sea fishes, and cross-amplification in another closely related commercially exploited deep- sea species intermediate scabbards resolved 11 polymorphic loci.
Distinction between silver hake (Merluccius bilinearis) stocks in U.S. waters of the northwest Atlantic based on whole otolith morphometrics
Accurate distinction between fi sh stocks is necessary for effective fi sheries management to prevent overfi shing of individual stocks, to preserve the reproductive and genetic diversity of stock
Rapid polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment length polymorphism method for discrimination of the two Atlantic cryptic deep‐sea species of scabbardfish
An efficient diagnostic method based on polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR–RFLP) analysis to discriminate between two cryptic species of scabbardfish, Aphanopus carbo and A. intermedius is provided.
Discrimination of Norwegian farmed, ranched and wild‐origin Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L., by image processing
Three-group quadratic discriminant function models were developed using different combinations of data types to separate farmed, ranched and wild-origin Atlantic salmon, and the most efficient model had a classification efficiency of 74%.
Arlequin (version 3.0): An integrated software package for population genetics data analysis
A completely new graphical interface written in C++, a more robust semantic analysis of input files, and two new methods: a Bayesian estimation of gametic phase from multi-locus genotypes, and an estimation of the parameters of an instantaneous spatial expansion from DNA sequence polymorphism are introduced.
