Portuguese translation:bacalhau australiano
Explanation:
Merluccius australis (Hutton, 1872)
Family: Merlucciidae (Merluccid hakes), subfamily: Merlucciinae
Order: Gadiformes
Class: Actinopterygii (ray-finned fishes)
FB name: Southern hake
Distribution: Southern circumglobal (Ref. 7300).Two distinct groups. New Zealand population: Chatham Rise, Campbell Plateau and South Island northward to the East Cape. Patagonian population: from Chiloe I. in the Pacific, southward around the southern tip of South America to the continental shelf to 59°S, and the slope north to 38°S in the Atlantic.
Diagnosis: Dorsal spines (total): 1-1; Dorsal softrays (total): 48-57; Anal spines: 0-0; Anal soft-rays: 40-46; Vertebrae: 53-58. Body more slender than other hakes. Pectoral fins long and slender, stripe reaching anal fin in young individuals but not in fish over 50 cm in SL. Gill rakers short and thick with blunt tips. Color is steel gray on back grading to silvery white ventrally.
Biology: Found at depths between 415 and 1000 m in New Zealand waters, and 62 to 800 m in South American waters. The Patagonian population feeds on southern blue whiting, whiptail, nototheniids and squids. The New Zealand population feeds mainly on fishes (especially gadoids), squids, euphausiids and benthic organisms. Adults probably migrate southward during the southern summer for feeding and return to the north in winter for spawning. Utilized as food fish and fishmeal.
Max. size: 126.0 cm TL; max. reported age: 30 years
Environment: benthopelagic; marine ; depth range 62 - 1000 m
Climate: subtropical; 38°S - 59°S
Importance: fisheries: highly commercial
Threatened: Not in IUCN Red List () , (Ref. 36508)
Dangerous: harmless

Oi Vanessa,
Obrigada pela ajuda, gostei muito da explicação. Semana passada conversei com um biólogo que é especialista em peixes e ele me aconselhou a deixar os nomes vulgares em inglês mesmo, porque os peixes, segundo ele não ocorrem no Brasil. O que você acha?

Merluccius australis


Explanation:
seria bom sim e correto manter o título família/espécie no original, e talvez a denominação em português entre [], pois pela foto podemos constatar que ele lembra -- e muito -- o bacalhau norueguês.

um abraço,
Vanessa
