|EMW-25||Anglerfishes nei||This category includes species the family Lophiidae (Goosefishes).|
From fishStat, all capture of “Anglerfishes nei” in 1999-2007 was from the Pacific Ocean.
From fishbase.org, the largest and smallest species of commercial or subsistence use and distributed in the Pacific Ocean are:
Lophius litulon. Max size: 150 cm SL (male/unsexed)
Blackmouth angler Lophiomus setigerus. Max size: 40.0 cm TL (male/unsexed).
Though not distributed in the Pacific Ocean, the larger species Lophius piscatorius (highly commercial) was used as the largest species due to the lack of weight data for Lophius litulon:
Angler Lophius piscatorius. Max size: 200 cm SL (male/unsexed); max. published weight: 57.7 kg.
