  • The anglerfish are fish of the teleost order Lophiiformes (/ˌlɒfiɪˈfɔːrmiːz/). They are bony fish named for its characteristic mode of predation, in which a modified luminescent fin ray (the esca or illicium) acts as a lure for other fish.
  • The luminescence comes from symbiotic bacteria, which are thought to be acquired from seawater, that dwell in and around the esca.
  • Some anglerfish are notable for extreme sexual dimorphism and sexual symbiosis of the small male with the much larger female, seen in the suborder Ceratiidae, the deep sea anglerfish.
  • In these species, males may be several orders of magnitude smaller than females.
  • Anglerfish occur worldwide.
  • Some are pelagic (dwelling away from the sea floor), while others are benthic (dwelling close to the sea floor).
  • Some live in the deep sea (such as the Ceratiidae), while others on the continental shelf, such as the frogfishes and the Lophiidae (monkfish or goosefish).
  • Pelagic forms are most often laterally compressed, whereas the benthic forms are often extremely dorsoventrally compressed (depressed), often with large upward-pointing mouths.
