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:
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:
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:
Notropis chlorocephalus, Notropis chiliticus, and Hybopsis hypsinotus are three species of fish found in the Peedee drainage and the Dan River of North Carolina. During a study of nest association among North American minnows in 1987-1988, these three fish species spawned over the nest of bluehead chubs (Nocomis leptocephalus). The advantage of spawning in nests of other fish species may be increased egg survivorship with no costs of parental care.

Abstract:
The pinewoods darter fish (Etheostoma mariae) is endemic to streams in the Carolina Sandhills where it is restricted to the Lumber River in North Carolina and to the Little Pee Dee River in North and South Carolina. This study examined the life history and ecology of the darter fish population in Naked Creek, North Carolina.

Abstract:
Two species of Thunnus, the yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) and the blackfin tuna (Thunnus atlanticus), are highly esteemed food and sport fish found in the Southern Atlantic Ocean. To obtain more data pertinent to the management of these fish, a study examined the stomach content of fishes collected at Oregon Inlet, Hatteras, North Carolina between 19809 and 1982.

Abstract:
Several cyprinid fishes are known to spawn in the nests of other cyprinid species, but cyprinid spawning in the guarded nests of centrarchids has been infrequently observed. Golden shiners (Notemigonus crysoleucas) were observed spawning in bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus Rafinesque) nests in a North Carolina pond. This spawning behavior may affect bluegill reproductive success.

Abstract:
Environmental impact studies associated with the operation of a nuclear steam electric power plant on the Cape Fear River near Southport permitted the first extensive survey of the marine and freshwater fish fauna of the Cape Fear watershed. The survey was conducted between 1973 and 1980, providing information on fish distribution, abundance, and water quality parameters.

Abstract:
Lake Waccamaw, North Carolina, is one of the shallow bay lakes of the southeastern coastal plain of North America. It has unusual water chemistry and harbors three endemic fish species. To assess the conservation status of the endemic species, this study measured the thermoregulatory behavior and diel activity patterns of fish species.

Abstract:
Whether or not fish can see in color has been debated by fishermen and scientists alike. The fishing tackle business has lines and lures in every color of the rainbow in the hopes of attracting fish.
