*  Lepisosteus - Wikipedia
Lepisosteus is a genus of gars in the family Lepisosteidae. While in the present day, Lepisosteus is only known across North America, fossil remains show it was much more widespread in the past, with specimens known from the Cretaceous of India and Brazil. The currently recognized species are: †Lepisosteus aganus (Cope 1877) †Lepisosteus bemisi Grande 2010 †Lepisosteus bohemicus (Laube 1901) †Lepisosteus cominatoi Santos 1984 †Lepisosteus cycliferus (Cope 1873) †Lepisosteus glaber Marsh 1871 †Lepisosteus indicus Woodward 1908 †Lepisosteus integer (Cope 1877) †Lepisosteus fimbriatus Wood 1846 †Lepisosteus knieskerni Fowler 1911 †Lepisosteus longus Lambe 1908 †Lepisosteus nahunticus (Cope 1869) †Lepisosteus notabilis Leidy 1873 †Lepisosteus opertus Estes 1964 †Lepisosteus strausi Kinkelin 1884 †Lepisosteus suessoniensis Gervais 1888 †Lepisosteus whitneyi Marsh 1871 Lepisosteus oculatus Winchell 1864 (Spotted gar) Lepisosteus osseus Linnaeus 1758 (Longnose gar) ...

*  Adverse Health Effects of Dietary Selenomethionine on Juvenile White Sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus)
Sturgeon are an ancient family of fish which have remained essentially unchanged for 200 million years, rendering them physiologically distinct from the more modern teleosts. Of the 26 known species of sturgeons all are likely endangered. North American populations have been declining steadily since the 1800s due to factors such as overharvesting, habitat alterations and increasing pollution. White sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus), endemic to Western North America, are the largest freshwater fish on the continent. Protecting white sturgeon is of interest because nearly all Canadian populations are endangered and they are culturally and economically important. Factors such as great size, longevity, position in the food chain and benthic life style render white sturgeon particularly susceptible to bioaccumulation of toxicants. They are known to be among the most sensitive species to pollutants such as metal ions, dioxin-like compounds and endocrine disrupters. However, little is known about ...

*  Ancient Grandeur of the Vertebrate Neuropeptide Y System Shown by the Coelacanth Latimeria chalumnae
The neuropeptide Y (NPY) family receptors and peptides have previously been characterized in several tetrapods, teleost fishes, and in a holocephalan cartilaginous fish. This has shown that the ancestral NPY system in the jawed vertebrates consisted of the peptides NPY and peptide YY (PYY) and seven G-protein-coupled receptors named Y1-Y8 (Y3 does not exist). The different vertebrate lineages have subsequently lost or gained a few receptor genes. For instance, the human genome has lost three of the seven receptors while the zebrafish has lost two and gained two receptor genes. Here we describe the NPY system of a representative of an early diverging lineage among the sarcopterygians, the West Indian Ocean coelacanth Latimeria chalumnae. The coelacanth was found to have retained all seven receptors from the ancestral jawed vertebrate. The receptors display the typical characteristics found in other vertebrates. Interestingly, the coelacanth was found to have the local duplicate of the PYY ...

Some fresh water lobe-finned மீன் (Sarcopterygii) develop legs and give rise to the நாற்காலி (உயிரியல்).. The first tetrapods evolved in shallow and swampy நன்னீர் habitats.. Primitive tetrapods developed from a lobe-finned fish (an "osteolepid Sarcopterygian"), with a two-lobed மனித மூளை in a flattened skull, a wide mouth and a short snout, whose upward-facing eyes show that it was a bottom-dweller, and which had already developed adaptations of fins with fleshy bases and எலும்புs. The "living fossil" coelacanth is a related lobe-finned fish without these shallow-water adaptations. These fishes used their fins as paddles in shallow-water habitats choked with plants and detritus. The universal tetrapod characteristics of front limbs that bend backward at the elbow and hind limbs that bend forward at the knee can plausibly be traced to early tetrapods living in shallow water.[6]. Panderichthys is a 90-130 cm ...

*  The organization of the octavolateralis area in actinopterygian fishes: A new interpretation
Abstract: The octavolateralis area of actinopterygian fishes can be subdivided into a dorsal lateralis area composed of first-order lateral line nuclei, and a ventral octavus area composed of nuclei receiving first-order input from the eighth nerve. Three patterns of organization of the lateralis area are recognized in the present study. The organization of this area in polypteriforms and chondrosteans is similar to that in chondrichthyans. On the basis of recent studies in chondrichthyans (McCready and Boord, '76; Boord and Campbell, '77; Bodznick and Northcutt, '80), it is hypothesized that this pattern reflects the subdivision of the lateral line system into mechanoreceptive and electroreceptive portions. As petromyzontid agnathans also share this pattern of organization, it is hypothesized that they are elecroreceptive. The lateralis area of holosteans and nonelectroreceptive teleosts exhibits a second organizational pattern that is hypothesized to reflect the loss of the ...

But if you're after two cool tidbits, know that the Australian Lungfish is essentially a living fossil. Fossilized evidence of its family members date back to the Devonian, and the Australian Lungfish itself has remained relatively unchanged for nearly 100 million years! There are five other Lungfish species still alive, and one of their closest lobe-finned relatives is the Coelacanth. Lobe-Finned fish are especially notable because it is from them that tetrapods eventually evolved ...

*  Queensland lungfish - Wikipedia
The Queensland lungfish (Neoceratodus forsteri), also known as the Australian lungfish, Burnett salmon and barramunda, is a surviving member of the family Neoceratodontidae and order Ceratodontiformes. It is one of only six extant lungfish species in the world. Endemic to Australia, the Neoceratodontidae are an ancient family belonging to the class Sarcopterygii, or lobe-finned fishes. Fossil records of this group date back 380 million years, around the time when the higher vertebrate classes were beginning to evolve. Fossils of lungfish almost identical to this species have been uncovered in northern New South Wales, indicating that Neoceratodus has remained virtually unchanged for well over 100 million years, making it a living fossil and one of the oldest living vertebrate genera on the planet. It is one of six extant representatives of the ancient air-breathing Dipnoi (lungfishes) that flourished during the Devonian period (about 413-365 million years ago) and is the ...

*  Oily fish - Wikipedia
Oily fish have oil in their tissues and in the belly cavity around the gut. Their fillets contain up to 30% oil, although this figure varies both within and between species. Examples include small forage fish, such as sardines, herring and anchovies, and other larger pelagic fish, such as salmon, trout, tuna and mackerel. Oily fish can be contrasted with white fish, which contain oil only in the liver, and much less overall than oily fish. Examples of white fish are cod, haddock and flatfish. White fish are usually demersal fish which live on or near the seafloor, whereas oily fish are pelagic, living in the water column away from the bottom. Oily fish meat is a good source of vitamins A and D, and is rich in omega-3 fatty acids (white fish also contain these nutrients but at a much lower concentration). For this reason the consumption of oily fish rather than white fish can be more beneficial to humans, particularly concerning cardiovascular diseases; however, oily fish are known to carry ...

*  Osteichthyes - Wikipedia
Osteichthyes /ˌɒstiːˈɪkθi.iːz/, popularly referred to as the bony fish, is a diverse taxonomic group of fish that have skeletons primarily composed of bone tissue, as opposed to cartilage. The vast majority of fish are members of Osteichthyes, which is an extremely diverse and abundant group consisting of 45 orders, and over 435 families and 28,000 species. It is the largest class of vertebrates in existence today. The group Osteichthyes is divided into the ray-finned fish (Actinopterygii) and lobe-finned fish (Sarcopterygii). The oldest known fossils of bony fish are about 420 million years ago, which are also transitional fossils, showing a tooth pattern that is in between the tooth rows of sharks and bony fishes. Osteichthyes can be compared to Euteleostomi. In paleontology, the terms are synonymous. In ichthyology, the difference is that Euteleostomi presents a cladistic view which includes the terrestrial tetrapods that evolved from lobe-finned fish, whereas on a traditional view, ...

*  The effect of sustained hypoxia on the cardio-respiratory response of bowfin Amia calva: implications for changes in the oxygen...
This study examined mechanisms underlying cardio-respiratory acclimation to moderate sustained hypoxia (6·0 kPa for 7 days at 22° C) in the bowfin Amia calva, a facultative air-breathing fish. This level of hypoxia is slightly below the critical oxygen tension (pcrit) of A. calva denied access to air (mean ± s.e. = 9·3 ± 1·0 kPa). Before exposure to sustained hypoxia, A. calva with access to air increased air-breathing frequency on exposure to acute progressive hypoxia while A. calva without access to air increased gill-breathing frequency. Exposure to sustained hypoxia increased the gill ventilation response to acute progressive hypoxia in A. calva without access to air, regardless of whether they had access to air or not during the sustained hypoxia. Additionally, there was a decrease in Hb-O2 binding affinity in these fish. This suggests that, in A. calva, acclimation to hypoxia elicits changes that increase oxygen delivery to the gas exchange surface for oxygen uptake and reduce ...

*  SUMMER FISH ASSEMBLAGES IN CHANNELIZED AND UNCHANNELIZED REACHES OF THE SOUTH SULPHUR RIVER, TEXAS
I used a conceptual model proposed by Schlosser (1987) to compare channelized and unchannelized reaches of the South Sulphur River, Texas. This model suggests that fish assemblage structure can be predicted based on the level of habitat heteroge neity, especially with regard to the level of pool development. Based on Schlosser's model, I hypothesized that habitat heterogeneity would be greater in the unchannelized (as compared to channelized) reach of the South Sulphur River, which would therefore have more stable fish assemblages. Fish assemblages in this reach would have similar total fish density and higher species richness, in addition to lower density and higher biomass of larger-bodied fish (primarily piscivores and omnivores), as well as lower density and biomass of juveniles and adults of small-bodied species (primarily invertivores) as compared to the channelized reach. Habitat characteristics conformed to my predictions, but fish assemblage attributes were opposite those hypothesized. ...

*  Analyzing the association between fish consumption and osteoporosis in a sample of Chinese men | Journal of Health, Population...
In this community-based, cross-sectional study, we found that frequency of fish consumption was positively associated with calcaneus BMD in Chinese men. We used a self-report questionnaire to estimate the fish consumption due to its convenience for large-scale, cross-sectional study. Fish is the major source of animal protein consumed in traditional Chinese diets. Our findings suggest that increasing the frequency of fish consumption may be an effective and economic way to prevent OP.. Our results are consistent with those of previous studies. For instance, Julian et al. found that greater fish consumption was associated with greater bone mass of the phalanges among pre-menopausal Spanish women [13]. Farina et al. also examined the association between fish consumption and hip bone mineral density cross-sectionally and longitudinally in the Framingham Osteoporosis Study, which indicated that both men and women with high fish consumption demonstrated greater mean baseline femoral neck BMD, and ...
