Poacher fish and pigfish, 19th-century illustrations. The top three illustrations show the poacher fish Agonopsis chiloensis (with its older genus name Aspidophorus). The bottom two illustrations show the pigfish Congiopodus peruvianus (with its older name Agriopus hispidus). These fish are found in the southern Atlantic and Pacific oceans. This page of illustrations is Plate 7 from the 1842 volume on fish ('Part IV: Fish') that forms part of the multi-volume work 'The Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Beagle'. This work described the animals collected and observed by the British naturalist Charles Darwin during the survey voyage of HMS Beagle during the years 1832 to 1836. This expedition established Darwin's reputation as a naturalist. Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Beagle' was edited by Darwin and published between 1838 and 1843. The volume on fish was written by British naturalist Leonard Jenyns (later Leonard Blomefield). The artworks were by Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins.
