Three non-native crayfishes have established breeding populations in North Carolina waters. Invasive species are ones that have been introduced into an area far from their natural ranges. Such species are considered biological pollutants, for they can have a negative effect on the local ecosystem. Future assessments of these crayfishes will require baseline data provided by this study: precise localities, dates of collection, sexes and numbers, and some information on reproduction.
Snapper fishes occur worldwide in tropical and temperate shallow to 550 m deep waters. In North Carolina waters sixteen snapper species have been recorded. Schwartz reports on their distributions, abundances, standard and total lengths and discusses a few length-weight relationships. Gray snappers are the most common and abundant snapper in North Carolina.
