Also known as Pineconefish. Diet: Zooplankton and fishes.
Max. Size: 17 cm
Fun Fact: Adults are found between 20 and 200 m depth, juveniles occasionally in shallower water. The photophores are thought to play a role in attracting the zooplankton upon which the fish feed; intraspecific communication may also be a use for the light.
