Flying fish live in all of the oceans,particularly in tropical and warm subtropical waters; there are about sixty-four species of them in the world. Thanks to their streamlined torpedo shape,they …

Pelagic fish reproduction

Pelagic fish reproduction

Reef fishes have developed a diversity of reproductive strategies to maximize survival of their offspring. They have an enormous fecundity compared to higher vertebrates. Depending on the species, they can spawn clutches of eggs daily, weekly or monthly or a few times a year. Spawning is secretive and typically only occurs during very specific and brief periods throughout the day. The majority of reef fishes spawn into the water column (pelagic eggs) or on the bottom (demersal …

Deep Water pelagic fish

Deep Water pelagic fish

In the open sea beyond the continental shelf, five life zones can be recognized. In the euphotic or epipelagic zone (the first 500 feet below the sea surface) cyanobacteria and phytoplankters receive enough light for photosynthesis. These tiny organisms are the primary producers of the entire pelagic regions. Beneath this zone, consumers either feed on sinking algae and bacteria, are scavengers of the rain of organic debris coming from above, or are predators of the other consumers …
