A contribution to the biology of the king whitings, genus Menticirrhus, of South Carolina.

species in northcentral GOM waters.
Constatou-se que os exemplares de Menticirrhus
americanus, capturados no litoral norte de Santa Catarina, são relativamente de grande porte (até 316 e 434 mm, machos e fêmeas).
denticulatus is an important species in the food chain as a primary consumer of phytoplankton and detritus and is also eaten by a wide range of predators including the fishes Menticirrhus
littoralis, Conodon nobilis, Trachinotus carolinus.

2005), were collected during the fall as juveniles and contributed to defining the fall inner-shelf (Larimus fasciatus and Menticirrhus
americanus) and mid-shelf (Cynosion nothus and C.
The inner-shelf assemblage was primarily represented by Menticirrhus
americanus during spring, summer, and fall, and by Micropogonius undulatus and Lagodon rhomboides during winter (Table 5).
In addition, the same pattern of reasonable recapture rates in this estuary and low or no recaptures in the ocean also occurred for another species, Menticirrhus
saxatilis, during the same period with exactly the same tag and recapture techniques (Miller et al.
princeps, Seriola lalandi, Roncador stearnsii and Menticirrhus
undulatus, contributed with the 56,4% of the total biomass.
Although it appears that the abundance of several other species (Portunus xantusii--Xantus' swimming crab, Paralabrax nebulifer--barred sand bass, Menticirrhus
undulatas--California corbina, and Pleuronichthys coenosus--C-O turbot) may also be correlated with the 1997-98 El Nino event (Tables 1 and 2), we are not considering these as "new/uncommon species" because they are all regularly found in the local sandy nearshore environment.
