The pacific cornetfish fistularia petimba family fistulariidae from the region of the gulf of aden



Voprosy Ikhtiologii 17(3): 542-545



The biology of the Pacific cornetfish F. petimba is summarized from data on specimens gathered by trawling at depths of 10-88 m off Somalia. F. petimba living at depths < 100 m reached lengths of 128.5 cm and weights of 1450 g, with females larger than males. Length of the caudal filament ranged from 6-22 cm and comprised 7.2-47.4% body length without the filament. In individuals studied only 1 right gonad had developed. The spawning period continued for at least 7 mo. F. petimba is a predator, feeding mainly on fish, cephalopods, shrimp, stomapods and other crustaceans. The most numerous food components in its stomach were cuttlefish, squid, Oratosquilla investigatoris, shrimp, crustaceans, Engraulidae, Saurida gracilis, S. tumbil, Bregmaceros sp., Apogonichthys sp., Trachurus mediterraneum indicus, Carangoides malabaricus, Nemipterus japonicus, Leiognathus sp., Pagellus natalensis, Labridae, Callyonimus sp., Platycephalidae and fish.
