OCCURRENCE OF PHRONIMA SEDENTARIA (FORSKÅL, 1775) (AMPHIPODA, HYPERIIDEA) IN THE STOMACH OF THE LONGNOSE LANCETFISH, ALEPISAURUS FEROX (LOWE, 1833) (AULOPIFORMES, ALEPISAUROIDEI) IN THE NORTH AND TROPICAL ATLANTIC OCEAN BY KEISUKE SATOH National Research Institute of Far Seas Fisheries (NRIFSF), 5-7-1, Shimizuorido, Shizuokashi, Shizuoka 424-8633, Japan ABSTRACT Longnose lancetfish ( Alepisaurus ferox ) were caught in a longline survey and from their stomach contents Phronima sedentaria were observed to be associated with a gelatinous organism that occurred at a high frequency. A simple regression analysis was performed between the number of barrels and the number of P. sedentaria , and a highly positive correlation resulted (r 2 = 0 . 978, p < 0 . 001, n = 118). Although the quantitative prevalence of the association of Phronima sedentaria and barrels in the zooplankton community of the study area can not be discussed from these limited seasonal data, it is clear that the association was an important food item for the dominating mesopelagic species, Alepisaurus ferox during the survey period in the North and tropical Atlantic Ocean. The distribution of the association is here reported because of the scarcity of the knowledge on this issue. RÉSUMÉ Des lanciers long-nez
