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:
White perch is a common fish that is usually found in brackish water and is also common in freshwater habitats. White perch in Albermarle Sound, North Carolina were collected to study length, weight, and age-specific fecundity relationships.

Abstract:
Atlantic menhaden fish were collected from purse-seine catches at Reedville, Virginia and Beaufort, North Carolina in 2003. The fork length to total length and length to weight relationships are presented to help investigators have more precise biostatistical information on forage fishes.

Abstract:
Trawling in deep ocean waters off North Carolina and adjacent areas between August 1969 and September 1977 captured dories, snailfish, and lumpfish. All were smaller than known and represent southerly range extensions.

Abstract:
Atlantic sturgeon populations, once abundant along the east coast and North Carolina, declined until a moratorium was declared in 1991. Fish specimens collected in Albermarle Sound and the Cape Fear River were examined. Snout shortening was observed in the sturgeon but reasons for this are still unknown.

Abstract:
Distributions, abundances and sizes are documented for species of searobins (family Triglidae) and armoured searobins (family Peristediidae) captured in inshore and offshore waters of North Carolina and adjacent areas. Observations show that the Cape Fear River estuary is a good nursery for these species, but fish distributions are being affected by warming and changing ecologies.

Abstract:
Various theories have attempted to explain color abnormalities in the southern flounder (Paralichthys lethostigma). Specimens of southern flounder were collected in Core Sound, North Carolina and examined. Observations contradict previous theories and suggest ambicoloration and abnormalities may be the result of other developmental factors.

Abstract:
Distributions and sizes are presented for three species of soapfishes and one razorfish documented to occur in North Carolinian waters. Unexplained gaps exist between early and recent captures of soapfishes and razorfishes.

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.

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.

Author(s):
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.

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.
