The fishery, biology, and management of Atlantic sturgeon, Acipenser oxyrhynchus, in North America
Biological data are needed to identify and characterize specific spawning and nursery areas; delineate migratory patterns and recruitment to various stocks; establish stock abundance; and, assess effects of various management strategies. Expand
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 and dissolved oxygen concentrations and showed improved tolerance to in- creased salinity improved with age, while younger fish were more susceptible to low oxygen concentrations. Expand
Primary factors affecting sturgeon populations in the Southeastern United States : Fishing mortality and degradation of essential habitats
Proposed management strategies aimed at conservation and restoration of sturgeon populations focus on protection of essential habitats and establishment of reserves to provide protection from fishing gears that generate substantial sturgeons by-catch. Expand
Status and management of Atlantic sturgeon, Acipenser oxyrinchus , in North America
The Atlantic sturgeon, Acipenser oxyrinchus, consists of two subspecies distributed along the Atlantic coast of North America from Labrador to the east coast of Florida (Atlantic sturgeon subspeciesExpand
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
Data indicate that salinity tolerance of southern flounder increases with age, and fish could tolerate salinities of 0–10 ppt (100% survival), which is similar to that observed among male flounders in the wild. Expand
Effects of Salinity on Growth, Survival, and Selected Hematological Parameters of Juvenile Cobia Rachycentron canadum
Results indicated that the overall growth of fish was significantly affected by salinity, and fish reared at salinity 5 ppt appeared to be in poor health as skin lesions, fin erosion, and discoloration were evident. Expand
