The authors discuss a red alga that has recently invaded the coastal waters of North Carolina. It has become abundant in the sounds and estuaries of the southeastern section of the state and is a nuisance for commercial fishing operations and industries drawing water from the lower Cape Fear River. Seasonal growth of the plant was studied at times of coldest and warmest air and water temperatures.
Five of seven species of belonid, ten of fourteen species of exocoetids, one scomberesocid, and five of nine species of hemiramphids fishes are known to occur in the western North Atlantic, in or off North Carolina waters. This information is drawn from specimens deposited in the North Carolina State Museum in Raleigh that give the size, distribution, abundance, and length-weight observation for each specimen. Most species frequent marine or brackish waters.
