Taxonomic review of the perciform fish genus Acanthistius from the east coast of southern Africa, with description of a new species and designation of a neotype for Serranus
sebastoides Castelnau, 1861.
Although the underlying Biblical proverb suggests that a fool's eyes are at fault, not his brains, Serranus
attributes the migrating brain to the Greeks, where indeed it can be found, and quite widely.

Histo-cytological study of the liver of the cabrilla sea bass, Serranus
cabrilla (Teleostei, Serranidae), an available model for marine fish experimental studies.
This type of female display behavior has been observed in several Serranus
species (Clark 1965; Pressley 1981; Hastings and Petersen 1986).
One species of sea bass, Serranus
tortugarum, releases eggs during about half of its 14 or so daily spawns and contributes sperm for the other half, explains Christopher W.
A second species of small planktivorus serranid, originally described as Serranus
incisus by Colin (1978), was transferred to Parasphyraenops by Johnson & Smith-Vaniz (1987).
However, Fernholm and Wheeler (1983) found that the specimen Linnaeus used as the basis of his description was in fact the Mediterranean serranid Serranus
scriba, so Sebastes (Perca) marina became a synonym of Serranus
scriba, and the rockfish was left without a type species for reference.
