Abstract
    The perciform suborder Notothenioidei, mostly confined within Antarctic and sub-Antarctic waters, dominates the modern Southern Ocean ichthyofauna. Notothenioids probably appeared in the early Tertiary and began to diversify on the Antarctic shelf in the middle Tertiary, adapting to progressive cooling (Eastman 1993). Notothenioids are morphologically and ecologically diverse, and account for 77% of the shelf fish diversity, 92% of abundance and 91% of biomass (Eastman 2005). They are monophyletic (Balushkin 2000; Chen et al. 2003; Near et al. 2004).
