Aulopiformes is an order of ray-finned fish consisting of thirteen living families of marine fish. They are grouped together on the strength of common features of pharyngobranchial structure. The common name grinners is sometimes used for this group.

Many of the aulopiforms are deep-sea fishes, and some species are hermaphrodites.
