Citation: Holt, E. W. L., & Byrne, L. W. (1909). Second report on the fishes of the Irish Atlantic Slope. In E. W. L. Holt (Ed.), Report on the sea and inland fisheries of Ireland for the year 1906: Part II. – Scientific Investigations (Appendix No. V, pp. 141–202). Dublin: His Majesty’s Stationary Office, Dublin.
Series/Report no.: Annual report on the sea and inland fisheries of Ireland: Part II. – Scientific Investigations;1906
Abstract: Many of the fishes which inhabit the deeper water of the Atlantic coast are unfamiliar to fishermen, and were not described in the books to which the general reader had ready access in the early 1900s. It was therefore the intention of the authors to give an account and figure; or sketch, of all except the well-known kinds. This is the second report in an occasional series on the fishes of the Irish Atlantic Slope.
Description: Please note that the text underneath the table “Measurements, in millimetres, and Numbers of Rows of Scales and Fin Rays in Irish specimens of Alepocephalus” on page 44 [182] reads: * Impossible to measure exactly in large individuals of this species.; † Height perhaps slightly increased by pressure during preservation.; ‡ Anterior rays very small and buried in skin, perhaps more numerous.
