Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes) > Stomiiformes (Lightfishes and dragonfishes) > Gonostomatidae (Bristlemouths)
Etymology: Sigmops: Taken from the name of the letter "S, sigma" (Ref. 45335 ) .  More on author: Vaillant .

Environment: milieu / climate zone / depth range / distribution range Ecology

Marine; bathypelagic; non-migratory; depth range 700 - 3000 m (Ref. 4463 ), usually 2000 - ? m (Ref. 117245 ).   Deep-water; 66°N - 62°S, 180°W - 180°E

Distribution Countries | FAO areas | Ecosystems | Occurrences | Point map | Introductions | Faunafri

Eastern Atlantic: scattered records from 65°30'N, 30°30'W (Ref. 4769 ) to Namibia; also off Cape Point, South Africa (Ref. 3991 ). Northwest Atlantic: Canada (Ref. 5951 ). Western Central Atlantic: between 20°N and 5°S. Austral Atlantic and Pacific: between 30° to 35°S.

Size / Weight / Age

Maturity: L m   ?   range ? - ? cm
Max length : 15.0 cm SL male/unsexed; (Ref. 4769 ); 20.0 cm SL (female)

Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal spines (total): 0; Dorsal soft rays (total): 11-15; Anal spines : 0; Anal soft rays : 22 - 26. Black in color (Ref. 3991 ). Few enlarged teeth on the roof of the mouth. Fewer anal rays and more gill rakers. Body compressed and photophores extremely small (Ref. 37473 ).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Bathypelagic (Ref. 58426 ). There is marked stratification of size with depth and no diel vertical migrations (Ref. 4769 ). Initial photophore develops at about 1.1 cm SL (Ref. 4769 ). Feeds on crustaceans (Ref. 58426 ).

Life cycle and mating behavior Maturity | Reproduction | Spawning | Eggs | Fecundity | Larvae

Sex reversal at about 5-10 cm SL (Ref. 4769 ). Some males become super males, apparently not undergoing sex reversal and are principal spawners (Ref. 4769 ). Females spawn at about 11 cm SL (Ref. 4769 ). Males macrosmatic, females microsmatic (Ref. 4769 ).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Preferred temperature (Ref. 115969 ): 2.9 - 4.8, mean 3.7 (based on 1424 cells). Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805 ):  PD 50 = 0.5312   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high]. Bayesian length-weight: a=0.00363 (0.00143 - 0.00920), b=3.07 (2.85 - 3.29), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245 ). Trophic Level (Ref. 69278 ):  3.5   ±0.50 se; Based on food items. Resilience (Ref. 69278 ):  Medium, minimum population doubling time 1.4 - 4.4 years (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
