Triglidae

 

(searobins, gurnards), a family of marine fishes of the order Perciformes. The body, which is spindle-shaped and covered with scales or plates, measures approximately 90 cm in length. The fingerlike lower rays of the ventral fin enable the fish to crawl on the bottom and also serve as organs of sense and taste. In deep-sea members of the genus Peristedion the entire body is covered with bony plates. Some species are capable of gliding in the air a short distance.

Members of the family are found in seas of the subtropical and temperate zones; in the USSR they are encountered in the Black Sea, the Baltic Sea, various seas of the Far East, and occasionally the Barents Sea. The eggs are pelagic. The fish feed on invertebrates and small fishes. They are fished commercially. The flesh is very tasty.

Beam trawl catches were dominated by demersal fish families including Triglidae, Gobiidae, and Serranidae, whereas the dominant families found in the otter trawl consisted of Engraulidae, Stromateidae, Sciaenidae, Triglidae, and Bothidae (Tables 2-4).
The dominant fish families (Engraulidae, Paralichthyidae, Gadidae, Triglidae, Serranidae, Sciaenidae, and Stromateidae) and to some degree species (butterfish, spotted hake, northern searobin [Prionotus carolinus], black sea bass [Centropristis striatus], weakfish) captured by the two gears in the study area were similar to those previously found in inner continental shelf waters off of the northeast United States (Colvocoresses and Musick, 1984; Mahon et al.
