and unidentified Agonidae. There were very slight, but statistically significant, differences in both mean lengths and size distributions of fishes among the three study habitats as fishes at the unenergized cables tended to be slightly larger (mean = 14.8 cm) than those at both natural habitats (mean = 13.7 cm) and energized cables (mean = 13.0 cm) [Welch's test: energized versus unenergized: F = 260.36, df = 1, and p < 0.0001; energized versus natural habitat: F = 18.37, df = 1, and p < 0.0001; unenergized versus natural habitat: F = 36.51, df = 1, and p < 0.0001].

bolini can be used to distinguish larvae from sympatric species of the closely related family Agonidae, which may be the sister group of the Hemitripteridae (Yabe 1985).

Homogeneous mud areas (soft stratum) differed from high-relief and low-relief outcrops by the characteristic presence of Pleuronectiformes and Agonidae.
Finally, the fourth group, soft-sediment associates (e.g., Pleuronectiformes, Agonidae, Citharichthys spp., and R.
