The species diversity of the Antarctic fish fauna changed notably during the ≈40 million years from the Eocene to the present. A taxonomically restricted and endemic modern fauna succeeded a taxonomically diverse and cosmopolitan Eocene fauna. Although the Southern Ocean is 10% of the world’s ocean, its current fish fauna consists of only 322 species, small considering the global diversity of ≈25,000–28,000 species. The fauna is “reasonably well-known” from a taxonomic perspective. This… Expand
