The distribution, temperature, and size ranges of 60 species of myctophids in the North Atlantic between 55°N and 24°N along approximately 30°W are recorded for the four seasons. The general zoogeography and migration is discussed. Faunal groups of species, faunal borders, and transition zones near 50°N, 41 °N, and 29°N for myctophids are distinguished and discussed.
