As members of distinct dietary guilds (Garrison and Link 2000), these species may serve as indicators of the importance of sand ridges to other guild members that were either not sampled effectively by the otter trawl (Pomatomus saltatrix, piscivore; Scophthalmus aquosos >100 mm, small crustacean predator) or were not present during the season sampled (Pseudopleuronectes americanus, benthic invertebrate predator; Urophycis regia, small crustacean predator).
A diverse group of fish predators was chosen with individual species representing freshwater habitats (tigerfish Hydrocynus brevis), marine pelagic environments (bluefish Pomatomus saltatrix), as well as benthic (winter skate Raja ocellata) and demersal (red hake Urophycis chuss; white hake Urophycis tenuis; and European hake Merluccius merluccius) marine habitats.
