As with the common features of other bony fishes (Miya et al., 2003; Cheng et al., 2012), three reading-frames overlap were noted on the same strand: ATPase8 and ATPase6 overlapped by 4 nucleotides, ATPase6 and COIII overlapped by 1 nucleotide, and ND4L and ND4 overlapped by 7 nucleotides (Supplementary Table I).
The catch was assigned to 1 of 5 groupings: billfish, which included swordfish and marlins, the latter of which were considered a bycatch; tuna (Thunnus spp.), considered bycatch; sharks, which included all elasmobranchs, considered bycatch; other bony fishes, which were assigned exclusively to bycatch species; and turtles.
TNF-a has been identified in many bony fishes including Japanese flounder (Hirono et al., 2000), sea bream (Garcia-Castillo et al., 2002), trout (Zou et al., 2002), catfish (Zou et al., 2003) and carp (Saeij et al., 2003; Savan and Sakai, 2004).
Relative to the longitudinal axis, the taut skins of cartilaginous (e.g., Motta, 1977) and bony fishes (e.g., Fujii, 1968) are reinforced with left and right cross-helical arrangements of collagen fibers, allowing the skin to form a rigid framework to support internal tissues yet remain flexible enough to permit the whole-body deformations required for swimming (Hebrank and Hebrank, 1986).

Well over 2,000 or an estimated one in every 10 to 20 species of bony fishes is a goby (suborder Gobioidei or order Gobiiformes, used interchangeably in this book), yet much knowledge about gobies is broadly dispersed and as cryptic as the fishes themselves.
