New York Bight Atlantic cod, gray trigger fish, scup, black sea bass, tautog, ocean pout, red hake, conger eel, cunner, sea raven, Hemitripterus americanus; and rock gunnel have been reported on reefs in this area (Westman, 1958; Briggs, 1975; Steimle and Ogren, 1982; Woodhead et al.
Southern New England Scup, black sea bass, tautog, Atlantic cod, ocean pout, red hake, conger eel, cunner, sea raven, and radiated shanny, Ulvaria subbifurcata, have been reported on these reefs (Alfieri, 1975; Carr and Amaral, 1981).
New York Bight Gray triggerfish, scup, black sea bass, tautog, Atlantic cod, ocean pout, red hake, conger eel, cunner, sea raven, rock gunnel, pollack, and white hake have been commonly reported on these deeper reefs (Bulloch, 1965; Woodhead et al.
Southern New England Scup, black sea bass, tautog, Atlantic cod, ocean pout, red hake, conger eel, and cunner occur here (Auster, 1984), as well as other species that are found in the New York Bight.
Cunner All post-larval stages are Tautogolabrus adspersus associated with marine- polyhaline reef habitats.
Aggregations of cunner, Tautogolabrus adspersus, and cod, Gadus morhua: co-occurrence with a dominant species in a temperate marine fish assemblage.
In laboratory studies, we gathered data on egg production, egg viability, egg fertility, sperm motility (presence or absence), male GSI, and male plasma vitellogenin concentrations in cunner over a series of exposure experiments to 17[beta]-estradiol, 17[alpha]-ethynylestradiol, and estrone.
Cunner were collected from Narragansett Bay off the Jamestown pier at the southern tip of Jamestown, Rhode Island (USA), during the summers of 1999 and 2000.
To investigate the correlation between male plasma vitellogenin concentrations and male GSI, data from the 103 surviving male cunner were analyzed.
Because cunner eggs are buoyant for a period of hours after spawning, each tank was fitted with a top drain to siphon surface water and spawned eggs.
In the laboratory, cunner routinely spawned in the afternoon, and eggs were rinsed from collection cups the next morning for counting.
Cunner were exposed to 17[beta]-estradiol, ethynylestradiol, or estrone using a subcutaneous slow-release implant system developed in our laboratory (25).
