Evaluating discard mortality of summer flounder
(Paralichthys dentalus) in the commercial trawl fishery: developing acoustic telemetry techniques.
The distribution of juvenile summer flounder
reportedly was limited to inshore nurseries between New Jersey and North Carolina (Able and Kaiser (3))--a range that was delineated at its northern extent by the increased sensitivity of early-stage summer flounder
to cold water temperatures (<2[degrees]C; Malloy and Targett, 1991).
Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) was tested to mimic the physical consistency of squid ink in experiments with summer flounder
Dahlberg and Odum (19) determined that fringed flounder, summer flounder
, southern flounder, and blackcheek tonguefish were found in trawls nearly year round, while we only observed such a broad annual occurrence by blackcheek tonguefish.
Despite extensive sampling in the management area, juvenile summer flounder
are only found from southern New Jersey to North Carolina (Smith and Daiber, 1977; Able et al.
were found to have structure related to the biogeographic boundary of Cape Hatteras in North Carolina, whereas evidence indicated that winter flounder and yellowtail flounder had population structures of much finer scales, including the existence of up to 3 stocks within New England waters.
We expected that cuttlefish would recognize black seabass and summer flounder
as potential predators because they have body shapes and behaviors similar to those of two of their natural predators from the eastern Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea--comber (Serranus cabrilla) and Atlantic halibut (Hippoglossus hippoglossus), respectively (Hanlon and Messenger, 1996; Blanc and Daguzan, 2000; Muus and Nielsen, 1999).
Significant differences were also detected between the total annual number of squid collected and Atlantic mackerel, Atlantic menhaden, and summer flounder
(P > 0.
Smaller 2-to 3-inch finger mullet, or mud minnows, are used on the same sliding-sinker "flounder rigs" used for the larger summer flounder
You might think we're talking about different kinds of people, but from Cape Cod to Cape Hatteras, those are actually names for one of the most delicious and highly sought-after fish in the sea - fluke, also called summer flounder
Roe, Northeast Regional Director of the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), announced in September 1988 that the Fishery Management Plan for the Summer Flounder
Fishery (Plan) had been approved.
DEP studies have shown that these materials are colonized quickly with organisms such as algae, barnacles, mussels, sea stars, blue crabs, and sea fans that attract smaller fish which, in turn, attract black sea bass, tautog, summer flounder
, scup, lobster and other sought-after species.
Abundance and stomach contents of seasonally co-occurring piscivores were examined to determine overlap in resource use for Summer Flounder
(Paralichthys dentatus; 206-670 mm total length [TL]), Weakfish (Cynoscion regalis; 80-565 mm TL), Bluefish (Pomatomus saltatrix; 55-732 mm fork length [FL]), and Striped Bass (Morone saxatilis; 422-920 mm FL).
That's a lot of dead, wasted fish, usually baby winter and summer flounder
, scup and butterfish in Nantucket and Vineyard sounds.
A black sea bass management region extending from Delaware through North Carolina is recognized by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission s summer flounder
, scup, and black sea bass Interstate Fisheries Management Plan.
