Abstract:
Coley Hughes is attempting to use fish ear bones to determine where a fish has gone and what tributaries provide the best environment for the fish. She does this by examining the chemical signatures in the fish’s ear bones.

Abstract:
The sheepshead minnow or sheepshead pupfish (Cyprinodon variegatus) is a species of fish found in saltmarsh and estuary environments, and is native to the eastern coast of North America. This study investigated the effects of salinity on the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood of C. variegatus.

Abstract:
The present status of longnose gar, Lepisosteus osseus (family Lepisosteidae) in North Carolina is reviewed, with emphasis on those captured in the Cape Fear River. Distribution, abundance, and length-weight relationships were compared to studies from other freshwater areas.

Abstract:
Seven species of batfishes were collected between 1968 and 2002 at shallow to deep water Atlantic Ocean stations located from North Carolina to Florida. New information reveals extended distributions of the batfishes, and biological characteristics that can be used to distinguish between batfishes.

Abstract:
Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Institute of Marine Sciences examined the bilateral asymmetry of forty smalltooth sawfish (Pristis pectinata) rostral width, rostral tooth number variation, and rostral tooth surface areas by age. The purpose of the study was to resolve confusion regarding these factors, and how they may relate to other species of sawfishes.

Abstract:
Cosmopolitan occurring ocean sunfishes or molas, Mola mola and Mola lanceolata (family Molidae), have been documented in North Carolina waters by a number of marine scientists. Frank Schwartz of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Institute of Marine Sciences updated information on both molas in relation to seasonal occurrences in ocean and estuarine waters, food, age, and additional fish associations.

Abstract:
This study examined the distribution localities, sizes, and depths frequented by red cornetfish and bluespotted cornetfish collected between 1958 and 2003 off North and South Carolina. Their recent status in sound and ocean waters was compared to earlier observations and distributions.
Record #:

Abstract:
The summer flounder, southern flounder, and gulf flounder all occur in southeastern estuaries of the United States. This study documented the tidally influenced movement of flounders in the upper intertidal zone of DeVeaux Bank, South Carolina. Flounders form sand beds which can be used to characterize the utilization of the intertidal zone by flounders.

Abstract:
Dwarf goatfish (Upeneus parvus) have been known in North Carolina since it was first collected in 1902, yet information on its biology and ecology is far from complete. New data from specimens collected between 1959 and 2003 provide information on the biological growth and habitat characteristics of dwarf goatfish.

Abstract:
Hitchhiking sharksuckers or remoras (family Echeneidae) attach to a host of sharks, stingrays, fishes, manatees, and sea turtles. Five species of sharksuckers were collected in western North Atlantic Ocean waters of North Carolina. Various body proportions and several new host affiliations are discussed.

Abstract:
Naked soles (Gymnachirus melas) are now known from 108 specimens collected between 1951 and 2003 off North Carolina ocean waters. Standard lengths, total lengths, capture depths, and capture locations of the naked soles were documented, but much remains unknown about their distribution, abundance, and biology.

Abstract:
Biological features of five species of carangid fishes (African pompano, Atlantic bumper, rainbow runner, leatherjack, and cottonmouth jack) were examined. Abundance and presence of all five species in ocean or inland waters of North Carolina were influenced by habitat or water conditions.

Abstract:
The distributions and size status are reviewed of one Labrid, four Ostraciid, and five Diodontid fishes in North Carolina. The majority of the fishes examined were occasional or rare members of the North Carolina fish fauna. Overall abundances and occurrences remain unresolved.
