Thysanactis dentex, the Broomfin dragonfish, is a species of barbeled dragonfish found in the ocean depths from 100 to 1,000 metres (330 to 3,280 ft). This species grows to a length of 18.0 centimetres (7.1 in) SL. This species is the only known member of its genus.

Fish measurement is the measuring of the length of individual fish and of various parts of their anatomy. These data are used in many areas of ichthyology, including taxonomy and fisheries biology.

Sparidae family of fishes

The Sparidae are a family of fish in the order Perciformes, commonly called sea breams and porgies. The sheepshead, scup, and red seabream are species in this family. Most sparids are deep-bodied compressed fish with a small mouth separated by a broad space from the eye, a single dorsal fin with strong spines and soft rays, a short anal fin, long pointed pectoral fins and rather large firmly attached scales. They are found in shallow temperate and tropical waters and are bottom-dwelling carnivores.
