Speices#199

Trigger Fish Rhinecanthus aculeatus Geography/Habitat:Triggers are found in warm waters in the Atlantic, Mediterranean Sea and Indo-Pacific Ocean. They will typically stay near the coast. Life Strategy: A trigger fish can raise the first two fin rays of its dorsal fin; the first ray will “lock” and the second one will “unlock”. As long as the fish is relaxed, the dorsal fin will be relaxed as well. If the fish feels threatened in any way, it will quickly disappear into a crack or crevice and raise its dorsal fin. The raised dorsal fin makes it very difficult for a predator to extract the trigger fish from its hiding place. Food Strategy: trigger species feed on crustaceans in the wild, but some eat zooplankton or algae. Triggers are equipped with sharp teeth and really strong jaws; otherwise they wouldn’t be able to efficiently crush hard-shelled crustaceans

Hagfish Hyperotreti Geography/Habitat: temperate regions in both hemispheres. Life Strategy: Hides under rock and under coral and sneaks or catches its prey off guard. Food Strategy: but it is actually a night-active hunter as well. The hagfish is famous for its habit of burrowing into dead or dying animals and devour them from the inside. Newer studies have however showed that the hagfish diet consists primarily of marine worms and other invertebrates

Koi/Common Carp Cyprinus carpio Geography/Habitat: . Carp were first bred for color mutations in China more than a thousand years ago, where selective breeding of the Prussian carp Life Strategy:Koi are cold-water fish, but benefit from being kept in the 15-25 °C (59-77°F) range, and do not react well to long, cold, winter temperatures; their immune systems "turn off" below 10°C. Koi ponds usually have a meter or more of depth in areas of the world that become warm during the summer, whereas in areas that have harsher winters, ponds generally have a minimum of 1.5 meters (4½ feet). Specific pond construction has evolved by koi keepers intent on raising show-quality koi.

Three Spined Stickleback Gasterosteus aculeatus Geography/Habitat: is a fish native to much of northern Europe, northern Asia and North America. It has been introduced into parts of southern and central Europe. Life Strategy:Three-spined stickleback populations are also found in freshwater lakes and streams.These subspecies actually represent three examples from the enormous range of morphological variation present within three-spined sticklebacks. These fall into two rough categories, the anadromous and the freshwater forms. Food Strategy:The anadramous form spends most of its adult life eating plankton and fish in the sea.

Speices#893

Lanternfish Neoscopelus macrolepidotus. Geography/Habitat: off South Africa, in the sub-Antarctic, and in the Gulf of Oman. Life Strategy:The lanternfish are thought to do this to avoid predation, and because they are following the diel vertical migrations of zooplankton, upon which the lanternfish feed. After a night spent feeding in the surface layers of the water column, the lanternfish begin to descend back into the lightless depths and are gone by daybreak. Food Strategy: lanternfish are an important link in the food chain of many local ecosystems, being heavily preyed upon by whales and dolphins; large pelagic fish such as salmon, tuna and sharks; grenadiers and other deep-sea fish (including other lanternfish); pinnipeds; sea birds, notably penguins; and large squid such as the jumbo squid.

This includes mesopelagic fish and squids found in the deep scattering layer[8] They also eat epipelagic schooling species such as scombroids, elupeoids and market squids. They have been recorded to make dives up to 200 metres (660 ft) deep.

Humback Whale Megaptera novaeangliae Geography/Habitat:Found in oceans and seas around the world. Life Strategy: humpback whales typically migrate up to 25,000 kilometres to get more food and to adjust to their habitat. Food Strategy: Humpbacks feed only in summer, in polar waters, and migrate to tropical or sub-tropical waters to breed and give birth in the winter. During the winter, humpbacks fast and live off their fat reserves. The species' diet consists mostly of krill and small fish. Humpbacks have a diverse repertoire of feeding methods, including the bubble net feeding technique.
