There is a paucity of information on juvenile tarpon Megalops atlanticus habitat use at the northern edge of its distribution. Therefore, we investigated the timing of recruitment and the size distribution of juvenile tarpon in natural and managed marshes in coastal South Carolina. We monitored recruitment to salt marsh habitats during July through...
Much emphasis has been placed on challenges related to estimating ages of old fish, yet accurately estimating age for young individuals has proved equally challenging for some species. Indices of recruitment are often based on assigning ages to young fish to estimate the strength of a given year class. Similarly, growth is most commonly estimated u...
Given recent trends of warming water temperatures and shifting fish distributions, detecting range expansion is important for resource management and planning. The subtropical common snook Centropomus undecimalis (hereafter referred to as snook) is an estuarine species that historically extended from the tropics to southern portions of Florida and...
Early life stage tarpon (Megalops atlanticus) have been collected in the western Atlantic Ocean north of Florida where it has been assumed that individuals migrate from estuarine areas at the onset of winter because water temperature during winter is too low for survival. However, there is anecdotal evidence of juvenile tarpon present during winter...
To evaluate growth and recruitment patterns of tarpon and two ladyfish species to the North Inlet, SC. We are examining larval and juvenile sizes at arrival, larval stages at arrival, duration of arrival, and habitat movement.
