Living representative—hagfishes: very successful, alive, and well. First major vertebrate radiation: ostracoderms (shell skin). True vertebrates with cranium of cartilage or bone, two or more semicircular (SS) canals, and a well-developed heart. , Myllokunmingia from Early Cambrian) (Shu et al.

I prefer to define it as the study of those factors that influence the distribution and abundance of fishes. In this sense, factors are abiotic and biotic components of the environment, those conditions that Darwin and Horan (1979) associated with the struggle for existence. Clearly, ecology of fishes is a study of aquatic ecosystems, fish adaptation, natural selection, and fitness. Many papers dealing with various aspects of fish ecology in the United States were published after the turn of the twentieth century, but more complete treatments of the subject have been published only recently.

Brine rejection), which sinks into the water below. This process varies with temperature and the rate of freezing, but sea ice contains only about 30% of substances dissolved in seawater, which would be about 4 ppt salinity (Thurmond and Trujillo 2002). As a result, the ice that is left is very low in salinity and less dense than the water below it. , at –40°C), more salt is trapped in the ice and the ice is more salty (about 10 ppt). However, as sea ice ages, more brine leaches out, and multiyear ice can attain very low salinities; the salinity of new sea ice is about 7–14 ppt, but multiyear ice ranges from about 0 ppt at the top to about 4 ppt toward the bottom (Gross and Gross 1995).
