Deep Sea Fish
This is a list
of fish that are measured as suited for human consumption.
This list is basically a copy of list of fish common names
where the most perceptibly inedible species are removed. Of
course some of the aloof species can be eaten, but the species
here are recurrently caught or farmed to be sold as food.
99% of fish are edible.
The anchovies are
a family (Engraulidae) of tiny, common salt-water fish. The
anchovy is a small green fish with blue reflections because
of a silver longitudinal hoop that runs from the bottom of
the caudal fin. It is a maximum of nine inches (~23 cm) in
length and body shape is changeable with more slender fish
in northern populations. The nose is blunt with small, sharp
teeth in both chops. The mouth is larger than that of herrings
and silversides, two fish which anchovies closely resemble.
The anchovy eats plankton and fry (recently-hatched fish).
Bass is a name
communal by many different species of popular gamefish. The
term includes both freshwater and marine species, many of
which are native to North America and surrounding waters.
All belong to the large order Perciformes, or perch-like fishes,
and in truth the word bass comes from Middle English bars,
The One type of Bass is temperate basses, such as the striped
bass and white bass .belonging to the family Moronidae.Next
type is,The black basses, such as the largemouth bass, smallmouth
bass , spotted bass , and Guadalupe bass, belonging to the
sunfish family, Centrarchidae.
The sablefish, Anoplopoma
fimbria, is one of two members of the fish family Anoplopomatidae
and the only class in the Anoplopoma genus. In English it
is also called sable (USA), butterfish (USA/Australia), black
cod (UK, Canada), blue cod (UK), bluefish (UK), candlefish
(UK), coal cod (UK), and coalfish (Canada), while many of
these names also pass on to other genus.
Bream is a universal
sound for a number of species of freshwater and marine fish
belonging to a range of genera including: Abramis (e.g. A.
brama, the carp bream); Acanthopagrus; Argyrops; Blicca; Brama;
Etelis; Lepomis; Gymnocranius; Lethrinus; Nemipterus; Rhabdosargus
Even though genus from all of these genera is called "bream",
the term does not involve a grade of relatedness between these
species. Fish termed "bream" tend to be narrow,
deep bodied species. The name is a root of the Middle English
word breme, of Old French origin.
(order Siluriformes) are a very various group of lean fish.
Named for their important barbels, which remind you of a cat's
whiskers, catfish collection in size and activities from the
heaviest, the Mekong huge catfish from Southeast Asia and
the best, the wels catfish of Eurasia, to detritivores (species
that eat dead material on the bottom), and even to a little
parasitic species frequently called the candiru, Vandellia
cirrhosa. There are armour-plated types and also exposed types,
neither having balance. in spite of their common name, not
all catfish have prominent barbels; what defines a fish as
being in the order Siluriformes are in fact certain features
of the skull and swimbladder. Catfish are of substantial profit-making
importance; many of the larger species are farmed or fished
for food. Many of the smaller species, principally the genus
Corydoras, are important in the aquarium relaxation.
is a name applied to a number of small sharks established
in the northeast Atlantic, Pacific, and Mediterranean, particularly
to those in the three families Scyliorhinidae, Dalatiidae
and Squalidae. Even though often used in reference to Scyliorhinus
canicula, the name is applied only freely and does not typically
imply a close taxonomic relationship.
smooth and transparent worm of the eel is called a leptocephalus.
A babyish eel is called an elver.Most eels prefer to dwell
in shallow waters or hide at the bottom layer of the ocean,
sometimes in holes. These holes are called eel pits. Solitary
the Anguillidae folks come to fresh water to reside there
(not to breed). Some eels dwell in deep water (in case of
family Synaphobranchidae, this comes to a deepness of 4,000
metres (13,000 ft), or are dynamic swimmers (the family Nemichthyidae
- to the depth of 500 metres (1,600 ft).
or fluke is flatfish that live in ocean waters ie., Northern
Atlantic and waters beside the east coastline of the United
States and Canada, and the Pacific Ocean, as well. The name
"flounder" refers to several geologically and taxonomically
separate species. In Europe, the name flounder refers to Platichthys
flesus, in the Western Atlantic there are the summer flounder
Paralichthys dentatus, southern flounder Paralichthys lethostigma,
and the winter flounder Pseudopleuronectes americanus, among
other species. In Japan, the Japanese flounder Paralichthys
olivaceus is common.While flounders have both eyes situated
on one side of the head, they are not born this way. Their
life involves alteration. During metamorphosis, one eye migrates
to the other side of the body so that mutually eyes are situated
on the upward-facing side of its body. After metamorphosis,
flounder lie on one side on the ocean floor; either the left
or right side might face upward depending on the species.
are fish of any of a number of genus in the subfamily Epinephelinae
of the family Serranidae, in the order Perciformes.Not all
serranids are called groupers; the family also includes the
sea basses. The familiar name grouper is habitually given
to fish in one of two big genera: Epinephelus and Mycteroperca.
In totaling, the species confidential in the miniature genera
Anyperidon, Cromileptes, Dermatolepis, Gracila, Saloptia and
Triso are also called groupers. Fish classified in the genus
Plectropomus are referred to as coral groupers. These genus
are all off the record in the subfamily Epiphelinae. However,
some of the hamlets (genus Alphestes), the hinds (genus Cephalopholis),
the lyretails (genus Variola) and some further little genus
(Gonioplectrus, Niphon, Paranthias) are also in this subfamily,
and sporadic species in other serranid genera have frequent
names involving the word "grouper". Nonetheless,
the word "groupers" on its own is usually taken
as denotation the subfamily Epinephelinae.
The word "grouper" comes from the word for the fish,
most widely invented to be from the Portuguese name, garoupa.
The origin of this name in Portuguese is supposed to be from
an indigenous South American language.
haddock or offshore hake is a marine fish dispersed on both
sides of the North Atlantic. Haddock is a fashionable food
fish, broadly fished commercially.The haddock is simply accepted
by a black lateral line successively along its white side
(not to be bewildered with pollock which has the reverse,
ie white line on black side) and a distinct dark splotch above
the pectoral fin, often described as a "thumbprint"
or even the "Devil's thumbprint" .
Haddock is most normally established at depths of 40 to 133
m, but has a range as deep as 300 m. It flourishes in temperatures
of 2° to 10°C (36° to 50°F). Juveniles rather
shallower waters and larger adults deeper water. Generally,
adult haddock do not engage in stretched migratory behavior
as do the younger fish, but seasonal arrangements have been
known to occur across all ages. Haddock feed primarily on
small invertebrates, even if larger members of the genus may
infrequently use fish.
