Observations of a wild polar bear (Ursus maritimus) successfully fishing arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) and fourhorn sculpin
There are no hollows or cavities corresponding to the spinules in the visceral sides of the basal plates of the tubercles in the fourhorn sculpin
Fourhorn sculpin exposed to an effluent containing As, Cd, Cu, Hg, Pb, and Zn had an increased incidence of skeletal deformities (Bengtsson and Larsson 1986).
Vertebral deformities and physiological effects in fourhorn sculpin (Myoxocephalus quadricornis) after long-term exposure to a simulated heavy metal-containing effluent.
The species of Lake Michigan fish used in the creation of these plots were lake trout, yellow perch, whitefish, white and long-nose sucker, and coho and chinook salmon, as well as several prey species such as bloater, alewife, fourhorn sculpin
, and rainbow smelt (De Vault et al.
The ninespine stickleback and fourhorn sculpin
dominated the specimens collected, representing altogether 75.
The three species, each the only representative of its genus in the Baltic Sea, are the fourhorn sculpin
Triglopsis quadricornis (Linnaeus, 1758), the shorthorn sculpin Myoxocephalus scorpius (Linnaeus, 1758) and the longspined bullhead Taurulus bubalis (Euphrasen, 1786).
Arctic cisco and least cisco) (Craig, 1984), whereas the marine nearshore environment on the seaward side of the barrier islands is more like the northeastern Chukchi Sea and is dominated by Arctic cod, capelin, and fourhorn sculpin
(Myoxocephalus quadricornis) (Griffiths et al.
were abundant at all times, but were not retained and the catch was not quantified.
Arctic cod (Boreogadus saida), fourhorn sculpin
(Myoxocephalus quadricornis), and arctic flounder (Liopsetta glacialis) are the most abundant marine species.
We analyzed abundance indices, as logetransformed catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE), of four marine species (arctic cod, Boreogadus saida; fourhorn sculpin
, Myoxocephalus quadricornis; arctic flounder, Pleuronectes glacialis; saffron cod, Eleginus gracilis); two freshwater species (round whitefish, Prosopium cylindraceum; arctic grayling, Thymallus arcticus); and the anadromous rainbow smelt, Osmerus mordax, to determine whether there were increases in the abundances of marine species and declines in anadromous and freshwater species.

in southeastern Lake Michigan.
