The Gibberichthyidae, also known as gibberfishes, are a small family of deep sea stephanoberyciform fish, containing a single genus, Gibberichthys (from the Latin gibba, "humpbacked" and the Greek ichthys, "fish"), and two species.[1][2] Found in the tropical western Atlantic, western Indian, and western and southwestern Pacific Oceans at depths of about 400-1,000 m, gibberfishes are of no economic importance. The maximum recorded size for either species is 12 centimetres (4.7 in) standard length.
