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.
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.
The Blue Ridge Parkway is a federal parkway administered by the National Park Service in Virginia and North Carolina.
