On the northern coast of Rio Grande do Sul, and on the southern coast of Santa Catarina, in gillnets, kingcroaker (Menticirrhus spp.), sole (Paralichthys patagonicus) and anchovy (Pomatomus saltatrix) were the target species, whose fishing incidentally removed seahorses from the sea.
Fish density in the shore zone (Table 1) was dominated by Atlantic silverside (Menidia menidia, 51%), bay anchovy (Anchoa mitchilli, 32%), weakfish (Cynoscion regalis, 4%), and bluefish (Pomatomus saltatrix, 2%).
Table 4 shows trace element concentrations in muscle tissues of 17 different fish species, namely, Silurus glanis, Blicca bjoerkna, Capoeta pestai, Cyprinus carpio, Scardinius erythrophthalmus, Mugil cephalus, Barbus capito, Esox lucius, Tinca tinca, Trachurus mediterraneus, Sarda sarda, Mullus barbatus, Engraulis encrasicolus, Gobius niger, Merlangius merlangus, Belone belone and Pomatomus saltatrix.

As members of distinct dietary guilds (Garrison and Link 2000), these species may serve as indicators of the importance of sand ridges to other guild members that were either not sampled effectively by the otter trawl (Pomatomus saltatrix, piscivore; Scophthalmus aquosos >100 mm, small crustacean predator) or were not present during the season sampled (Pseudopleuronectes americanus, benthic invertebrate predator; Urophycis regia, small crustacean predator).
