For example, Tricas (1979) and Harvey (1989) reported that blue sharks consume euphausiids (mostly Thysanoessa spinifera), small fish (e.g., the northern anchovy, Engraulis mordax), and a variety of cephalopods (e.g., Loliginidae and Histioteuthidae).
Our identification of mesopelagic (e.g., Ancistrocheiridae, Histioteuthidae, Gonatidae cephalopods) and bathypelagic (i.e., Vampyroteuthis infernalis) prey in significant quantities, suggests that, at least for the area studied, they also completed vertical migrations to feed on preferred or available prey, or both (Roper and Young, 1975).
The families include Ancistrocheiridae (ANC), Argonautidae (ARG), Bolitaenidae (BOL), Chiroteuthidae (CHI), Coryphaenidae (COR), Cranchiidae (CRA), Delphinidae (DEL), Engraulidae (ENG), Enoploteuthidae (ENO), Enteroctopodidae (ENT), Galatheidae (GAL), Gonatidae (GON), Histioteuthidae (HIS), Loliginidae (LOL), Macrouridae (MAC), Mastigoteuthidae (MAS), Merlucciidae (MER), Myctophidae (MYC), Octopodidae (OCD), Octopoteuthidae (OCT), Oeogopsidae (OEO), Ommastrephidae (OMA), Onychoteuthidae (ONY), Pholidoteuthidae (PHO), Scombridae (SCO), Sphyraenidae (SPH), Thysanoteuthidae (THY), Tremoctopodidae (TRE), Vampyroteuthidae (VAM), and Vitreledonellidae (VIT).
Squid diversity in the micronekton of the Eastern Tropical Pacific is low, with only 15 species reported from the families Enoploteuthidae, Onychoteutidae, Cranchiidae, Histioteuthidae and Ommastrephidae (Blackburn, 1968).
Cephalopods comprised 97%N of the total items identified and included 11 taxa from 5 families: Gonatidae (69.4%N), Cranchiidae (18.4%N), Octopoteuthidae (5.8%N), Vampyroteuthidae (2.9%N), and Histioteuthidae (0.5%N).

Several studies have shown that this species feeds primarily on deep-water squid (e.g., Onychoteuthidae, Cranchiidae, and Histioteuthidae; Weimerskirch et al., 198 6; Rodhouse et al., 1987; Ridoux, 1994) that live well beyond the diving capacities of these seabirds (Croxall and Prince, 1994).

The diet of lancetfish consists of pelagic crustaceans (Hyperiidae, Portunidae, Amphipoda), cephalopods of the families Onychoteuthidae, some Ommastrephidae (Ornithoteuthis volatilis), Cirroteuthidae, Octopodidae, Argonautidae, Cranchiidae, Histioteuthidae, Bathyteuthidae, and mesopelagic fishes (Sternoptyx diaphana, Paralepis elongata, Omosudis lowei, A.
