This order contains nine families of small to medium-sized, soft-bodied fishes (Cohen et al. 1990; Nelson 2006). Most are deepsea fishes found below 200 m and many are important commercially. Relationships are treated in Cohen (1989), Howes (1991) and Endo (2002). The classification of this group is in dispute and Nelson (2006) has summarised the various arguments.
