Abstract

A list of Southern Ocean fishes captured in the Argentinian continental shelf and adjacent areas is presented. The list comprises a total of 41 species. They represent 15% of the ichthyofauna registered in the Southern Ocean. The geographic position of the samples was considered in order to show the northward displacement of some Antarctic species toward southwestern Atlantic waters.
