Bollmannia boqueronensis is a tropical marine goby. Two specimens were captured at 25 m depth on the Alacranes Reef, Mexico, off the north-east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula (Gulf of Mexico) in August 2009. The present note extends the known distribution area of this species towards the west and constitutes the first record for Mexico.
This study presents the first list of fish species from Madagascar Reef, Campeche Bank, Gulf of México. Field surveys and literature review identified 54 species belonging to 8 orders, 30 families and 43 genera, comprising both conspicuous and cryptic fishes. Species richness was lower at this reef site compared to reefs in the Mexican Caribbean, V...
RESUMEN Se caracterizó el hábitat de langosta P. argus en su etapa juvenil tardía. Se realizaron cuatro campañas de muestreo (abril-junio de 2010); se situaron 99 estaciones en sitios con probabilidad de encuentro de langosta identificados por buzos–pescadores y se hicieron video-transectos. Se definieron tipos de fondo, se estimó la densidad media...
Serranus flaviventris (Cuvier, 1829) is a common species wide distributed and documented in the Greater Caribbean and South America. Four specimens were captured at 1 m depth in Seybaplaya, Campeche, Mexico, in August and September 2017. The present note constitutes the first record for Mexico and extends the previous distribution of the species in...
Autonomous reef monitoring structures (ARMS) have been proposed as a standardized, passive, nondestructive sampling tool. This study assessed the ability of ARMS to capture the cryptic species diversity of two coral reefs by recording species richness and taxonomic representativeness using conventional taxonomy. The capacity of ARMS, as artificial...
This paper records the presence of the splendid toadfish Sanopus splendidus Collete, Starck & Phillips, 1974, an endemic species from the Mexican Caribbean in two sampling sites in the Costa Occidental de Isla Mujeres, Punta Cancún y Punta Nizuc National Park (Mexico). Two individuals were photographed by sport divers. This is the northernmost reco...
A series of small emergent coral reefs and shallow, submerged coralliferous banks are scattered along the western edge of Campeche Bank (southwest Gulf of Mexico), 150-200 km offshore from the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico. Here a reasonably comprehensive, annotated checklist of reef-associated fishes for one reef, Cayo Arcas (expanded from 162 to 209...
