Clupeidae

Definition (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clupeidae)

Clupeidae is the family of the herrings, shads, sardines, hilsa and menhadens. It includes many of the most important food fishes in the world. Clupeids are mostly marine forage fish, although a few species are found in freshwater. No species has scales on the head, and some are entirely scaleless. The lateral line is short or absent, and the teeth are unusually small where they are present at all. Clupeids typically feed on plankton, and range from 2 centimetres (0.79 in) to 75 centimetres (30 in) in length. (Wikipedia)
