Silver scabbard fish

The Silver scabbard fish lives in the benthopelagic, marine, depth range 20 - 500 m environment.

Silver scabbard fish were displayed in elegant serpentine curves next to cuttlefish, with their tentacles tastefully fanned out, and freshwater fish taken from the river that morning. The fishing village of Caneiras is just a few miles from Santarém. More
