Abstract--The Caranx hippos species complex comprises three extant species: crevalle jack (Caranx hippos) (Linnaeus, 1766) from both the western and eastern Atlantic oceans; Pacific crevalle jack (Caranx caninus) Gtinther, 1868 from the eastern Pacific Ocean; and longfin crevalle jack (Caranx fischeri) new species, from the eastern Atlantic, including the Mediterranean Sea and Ascension Island.
With regard to fighting ability of the crevalle jack, Shipp (1986) stated "there is no tougher game to be had in shallow coastal waters with light tackle than this species.
Species that migrated out of the NTZ were red drum (n=40, mean TL=643 mm, SD=135 mm), common snook (n=9, mean TL=570 mm, SD=97 mm), black drum (n=8, mean TL=845 mm, SD=88 mm), sheepshead (n=6, mean TL=398 mm, SD=38 mm), bull shark (n=l, TL=789 mm), and crevalle jack (n=1, TL=628 mm).
