Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The cornetfishes are a small family Fistulariidae of extremely elongated fishes in the order Syngnathiformes. The family consists of just a single genus Fistularia with four species, found worldwide in tropical and subtropical marine environments.Ranging up to 200 centimetres (6.6 ft) in length, cornetfishes are as thin and elongate as many eels, but are distinguished by a very long snout, distinct dorsal and anal fins, and a forked caudal fin whose center rays form a lengthy filament. The lateral line is well-developed and extends onto the caudal filament.
