In addition to the oral presentation, three posters were on display during the Congress: updated pharmacodynamic and safety data from SUNFISH Part 1, preliminary evidence for pharmacodynamic effects of RG7916 in JEWELFISH, and preclinical data demonstrating the relationship between central and peripheral SMN protein increase upon treatment with RG7916.
Some fish, primarily a few of the damsels like the beaugregory, cocoa damsel, dusky damsel and the yellowtail damsel (also called jewelfish for its beauty), defend their territories so vigorously that they bully and pick at the other fish in the aquarium.
The Mayan cichlid (Cichlasoma urophthalmus) and the African jewelfish (Hemichromis letourneuxi) are now among the most abundant species in parts of the Everglades (Faunce and Lorenz, 2000; Loftus et al.
The range of the African jewelfish has recently expanded from a few populations in the Everglades to include most of the southern half of Florida, reaching as far north as Tampa (Langston et al.
Our main objective was to determine the current distribution and relative abundance (measured by catch-per-unit-effort, CPUE) of exotic fish species on the Archbold Reserve and to compare the condition and diet of African jewelfish in these recently established populations with data published on other populations in their native and introduced ranges.
If African jewelfish were detected following this initial trapping effort, then we removed the traps.
Further, the weight and length frequency distributions of African jewelfish captured during this study suggest that the minnow traps exerted little or no size bias.
We also made a ventral incision in all African jewelfish to visually determine sex and to determine if fish were gravid (large, well-developed, unfertilized yellow eggs) or carrying undeveloped (small and white) eggs (Hyslop, 1987).
The CPUE for African jewelfish and brown hoplo were pooled to create the "exotic fish abundance" used in some analyses because the small number of wetlands occupied by each species precluded meaningful species-specific analyses.
The common name Euripos Jewelfish is derived from a Greek word meaning "canal, channel, ditch, or strait" in allusion to the type locality, Mona Passage, and the fact that the new species like most anthiine fishes is a jewel to behold.

Editor's Note: Fisheries biologist Grant Gilmore (author of The Sportsman's Biologist column) says this fish is the longtailed jewelfish or swallowtail bass, Anthias woodsi.
