The fishery, biology, and management of Atlantic sturgeon, Acipenser oxyrhynchus, in North America
SynopsisThe Atlantic sturgeon supported major fisheries along the entire Atlantic coast of North America. These fisheries peaked about 1890 and then suffered almost total collapse by 1905. TheExpand
Habitat Utilization and Biological Characteristics of Adult Atlantic Sturgeon in Two South Carolina Rivers
Abstract Thirty-nine adult Atlantic sturgeon Acipenser oxyrinchus oxyrinchus (136–234 cm total length) were caught in gill nets fished at historical sturgeon-fishing locations in the Combahee andExpand
Tolerance of Shortnose Sturgeon, Acipenser brevirostrum, Juveniles to Different Salinity and Dissolved Oxygen Concentrations1
Cultured shortnose sturgeon juveniles, age 11-330 days, were exposed to different salinity (0-35 ppt) and dissolved oxygen concentrations (2.0-5.0 mg/liter) in a series of experiments designed toExpand
Primary factors affecting sturgeon populations in the Southeastern United States : Fishing mortality and degradation of essential habitats
Atlantic and shortnose sturgeons are highly valued for their eggs (caviar) and flesh, but stocks of both species are depleted. The shortnose sturgeon is listed as an endangered species, and aExpand
Status and management of Atlantic sturgeon, Acipenser oxyrinchus , in North America

Bycatch of Sturgeons along the Southern Atlantic Coast of the USA
Abstract Information on incidental capture of shortnose sturgeons Acipenser brevirostrum and Atlantic sturgeons A. oxyrhynchus in commercial fisheries was derived from four studies conducted in SouthExpand
Tag-reporting levels for red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) caught by anglers in South Carolina and Georgia estuaries
A total of 1784 legal-size (≥356 mm TL) hatchery-produced red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) were tagged and released to estimate tag-reporting levels of recreational anglers in South Carolina (SC) andExpand
Movements and Habitats of Shortnose Sturgeon, Acipenser brevirostrum in the Savannah River
Telemetry studies were conducted to determine seasonal movements and habitat areas of adult and juvenile shortnose sturgeon (Acipenser brevirostrum) in the Savannah River. Thirty-two adults (19Expand
Salinity Effects on Early Life Stages of Southern Flounder Paralichthys lethostigma
.— In South Carolina, studies have been conducted to develop rearing techniques for southern flounder Paralichthys lethostigma a candidate for aquaculture development and stock enhancement programs.Expand
Effects of Salinity on Growth, Survival, and Selected Hematological Parameters of Juvenile Cobia Rachycentron canadum
Cobia Rachycentron canadum juveniles (119.7 mm TL, weight 8.5 g) were reared for 10 wk at three salinity levels: 5 ppt, 15 ppt. and 30 ppt. Growth and survival were determined through biweeklyExpand
