The Atlantic croaker
(Micropogonias undulatus) in the western Atlantic range from the Gulf of Maine to the northern Gulf of Mexico (GOM).
(Micropogonias undulatus), and red drum Sciaenops ocellatus).
are members of the Sciaenidae family, collectively and commonly referred to as the croakers or the drums.
For all areas and target species, 4 species comprised > 66% of total catch: grouped finfish species (26%), Atlantic croaker
(16%), brown shrimp (13%), and white shrimp (11%).
southeastern Atlantic coast and the northern Gulf of Mexico, two sciaenid species, the spot (Micropogonias undulatus) and Atlantic croaker
(Leiostomus xanthurus), are among the most widespread and abundant fishes in shallow estuarine habitats (McErlean et al.
Therefore, the South Atlantic component of the Southeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program (SEAMAP-SA), as part of its Coastal Survey (a long-term, fishery-independent, shallow-water trawl survey from Cape Canaveral, Florida, to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina), began collecting stomachs from 3 common species of Sciaenidae; weakfish (Cynoscion regalis), southern kingfish (Menticirrhus americanus), and Atlantic croaker
Six species of fishes (bay anchovy, Atlantic croaker
Micropogonias undulatus Linnaeus, pipefishes Syngnathus spp.
Sperry and Thomas (1999a, 1999b) found two fish androgen receptor subtypes in Atlantic croaker
(Micropogonias undulatus) and kelp bass (Paralabrax clathratus), which both have great affinity for testosterone, whereas 11-KT only binds one of these receptors.
Marine species stocked in inland waters included red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus), black drum (Pogonias cromis), Atlantic croaker
(Micropogonias undulatus), spot (Leiostomus xanthurus), spotted seatrout (Cynoscion nebulosus), and southern flounder (Paralichthys lethostigma).
A species each from the Atlantic and GOM represent group D: Atlantic Croaker
(Micropogonias undulatus) and Silver Seatrout.
5) indicate that white shrimp comprised 49% of the total catch; followed by penaeid shrimp at 17%; Gulf menhaden, Brevoortia patronus, at 8%; blue crab, Callinectes sapidus, at 7%; discarded penaeid shrimp at 6%; debris at 3%; Atlantic croaker
, Micropogonias undulatus, and threadfin shad, Dorosoma petenense, each at 2%; and blue catfish, Ictalurus furcatus, at 1%.
By contrast, Craig's team found "no obvious negative effects of hypoxia on growth or lipid content of the Atlantic croaker
This study used state-space biomass dynamic models without (model 1) and with (model 2) the minimum winter estuarine temperature (MWET) to examine MWET effects on Atlantic Croaker
population dynamics during 1972-2008.
By the early 1970's state researchers were making considerable advances in the culture of such marine fishes as red and black drum, Atlantic croaker
, flounder, and spotted seatrout, and reported a major breakthrough in hatching 150,000 spotted seatrout at Olmito Hatchery in Brownsville in 1973.
Teleosts, such as red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus), Atlantic croaker
(Micropogonias undulatus), oyster toadfish (Opsanus tau), black sea bass (Centropristis striata), and the bluefish (Pomatomas saltatrix), showed no hook preference in either hook-and-line or longline studies.
