The orangemouth corvina (Cynoscion xanthulus), bairdiella
icistia), and sargo (Anisotremus davidsonii) were established in the Salton Sea in the 1950s and, although piscivorous, these species were not considered a threat to desert pupfish because their habitats rarely overlapped (Walker et al.
chrysoura Lacepede (silver perch) are resident in the summer, but are not found in winter because they migrate out of estuaries and move south as temperatures cool in the fall (Able and Brown, 2005; Able and Fahay, 1998).

Three non-catfish species, all of which are marine (silver perch, Bairdiella
Chrysoura; spotted seatrout, Cynoscion nebulosus, and striped anchovy, Anchoa hepsetus) were collected in 2000 in very small numbers, but not in 1983-1984.
Also boated was a slew of tilapia (those that aren't floating are delicious-eating) and bairdiella
, a smaller croaker - both of which are forage for corvina.
Ten species of fish were only collected in the spring: black drum Pogonias cromis, silver perch Bairdiella
chrysoura, southern kingfish Menticirrhus americanus, stripped mullet Mugil cephalus, ladyfish Elops saurus, pipefish Syngnathus spp.
