The ribbonfish are any lampriform fishes in the family Trachipteridae. These pelagic fish are named for their slim, ribbon-like appearance. They are rarely seen alive, as they typically live in deep waters, though are not bottom feeders. The Sparidae are a family of fish in the order Perciformes, commonly called sea breams and porgies (North America). They are found in shallow temperate and tropical waters and are bottom-dwelling carnivores. Starfish or sea stars are star-shaped echinoderms belonging to the class Asteroidea. They are found from the intertidal zone down to abyssal depths, 20,000 feet below the surface. Undated.
