Abstract

Data on the deep sea fishes found off the northern Brazilian coast are restricted to the results of the surveys of the RV Oregon, a research vessel of the North American National Marine Fisheries Service, and the REVIZEE Program. The REVIZEE Score-Norte Program focused on commercial fish species and natural resources with potential for exploitation on the continental shelf and slope off the northern coast of Brazil. In this sense, the REVIZEE Score-Norte Program generated little information on species of no commercial value, did not catalog its inventory in zoological collections, and did not publish species lists. Given this considerable knowledge gap on the deep-sea fish found off the North coast of Brazil, we compiled all the available data on the deep-sea fish of this region and also retrieved photographic records from the REVIZEE Score-Norte Program, including the PRODEMERSAL and PROTUNA projects. Considering the published records, specimens deposited in zoological collections, and the interpretation of photographic records, we compiled a list of 63 species of deep-sea fish from the North coast of Brazil. An additional 30 species were found in the published records from the PRODEMERSAL and PROTUNA, but were considered to be doubtful or pending confirmation.

Abstract <p>Os dados sobre peixes de profundidade encontrados na costa Norte do Brasil s&atilde;o restritos aos resultados de coletas realizadas pelo RV Oregon, um navio do Servi&ccedil;o Nacional de Pesca Mar&iacute;tima da Am&eacute;rica do Norte, e do Programa REVIZEE. O Programa REVIZEE Score-Norte teve como foco as esp&eacute;cies de peixes com valor comercial e recursos naturais com potencial para explora&ccedil;&atilde;o na plataforma continental da costa Norte do Brasil. Contudo, o REVIZEE Score-Norte gerou pouca informa&ccedil;&atilde;o sobre as esp&eacute;cies sem valor comercial, n&atilde;o catalogou o material da biodiversidade inventariada, assim como n&atilde;o gerou listas de esp&eacute;cies. Dada a lacuna no conhecimento sobre os peixes de profundidade da costa norte do Brasil, n&oacute;s compilamos todos os dados dispon&iacute;veis e recuperamos registros fotogr&aacute;ficos do Programa REVIZEE Score-Norte, incluindo os projetos PRODEMERSAL e PROTUNA. Considerando os registros publicados, esp&eacute;cimes depositados em cole&ccedil;&otilde;es zool&oacute;gicas e os registros fotogr&aacute;ficos, apresentamos uma lista de 63 esp&eacute;cies de peixes de profundidade na costa Norte do Brasil. Outras 30 esp&eacute;cies encontradas nos registros publicados do PRODEMERSAL e PROTUNA, foram consideradas duvidosas, carecendo de confirma&ccedil;&atilde;o</p>
