PARR OBSOLETE Measurements and Counts for Notacanthidae Specimens

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

Taxonomic data were collected for specimens of deep-sea spiny eels (Notacanthidae) from the Hawaiian Ridge by Bruce C. Mundy. Specimens were collected off the north shore of Maui (21?07?N, 156?0.13?W) on 16 July 1972 with a 12.05 m shrimp trawl, at the Southeast Hancock Seamount (29?47?N, 179?04?E) on 5 November 1986 with a 1.8 m Isaacs-Kidd midwater trawl, and from the outflow of the Keahole Point, Hawai?i Island (19?43?N,156?03?W), Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority (NELHA) experimental Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) facility?s 40-inch intake pipe in 2004. Additional taxonomic data were collected from notacanthid specimens in the fish collection of the U.S. National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution. Measurements were taken to the nearest 0.1 mm with dial calipers, except those of total or standard length, which were taken by stretching the specimens on a steel ruler. Vertebral counts and fin element counts were taken from digital X-rays.
