In 2000, the Council began discussions regarding implementation of MPA's from North Carolina to the Florida Keys to protect deepwater species susceptible to overfishing (i.e., speckled hind, Epinephelus dnimmondhayv, golden tilefish, Lopholatilus
chamaeleonticeps', blueline tilefish, Caulolatilus microps\ snowy grouper, Hyporthodus niveatus', Warsaw grouper, Hyporthodus nigritus; misty grouper, Hyporthodus mystacinus', and yellowedge grouper, Hyporthodus flavolimbatus).

On the continental edges of the North Atlantic, the fish Lopholatilus
chamaeleonticeps digs holes 13 ft (4 m) wide and 10 ft (3 m) deep in the sediment, which attract a large number of crabs, fish, echinoderms, and other benthic organisms that are usually sparsely distributed over the seafloor.
The largest amount of demersal fish such as Urophycis mystacea, Merluccius hubbsi, Genypterus brasiliensis, Lophius gastrophysus and Lopholatilus
villarii and the deep-sea lobster Metanephrops rubellus were captured in areas with local depths from 100 to 250 m.
Similar assessments in deeper waters of the middle to outer shelf are lacking, aside from those obtained from submersible surveys directed toward tilefish (Lopholatilus
chamaeleonticeps) at depths of 117-268 m (Grimes et al., 1986).
Thus, observers also boarded bottom longline fishing trips that targeted shallow-water groupers (mainly red grouper, Epinephelus morio), snapper (primarily red snapper), and deepwater groupers and tilefish (yellowedge grouper, Epinephelus flavolimbatus, and tilefish, Lopholatilus
Off the coast of Sao Paulo purse seiners commonly catch sardines and other small pelagic fish, longliners target dolphin fish (Coryphaena hippurus), namorado sandperch (Pseudopercis numida) and tilefish (Lopholatilus
villarii), and artisanal trawlers aim at seabob shrimp (Xiphopenaeus kroyeri).
Abstract--The modern fishery for Tilefish (Lopholatilus
chamaeleonticeps) developed during the 1970s, offshore of southern New England, in the western North Atlantic Ocean.
Yellowedge grouper comprised 10% of the catch, followed by blueline tilefish, Caulolatilus microps, at 5%; red snapper, tilefish, Lopholatilus
chamaeleonticeps, and Atlantic sharpnose shark, Rhizoprionodon terraenovae, each at 3%.

The third component reflects a fishery characterized by medium-sized vessels with landings composed principally of bluefish, Pomatomus saltatrix; tilefish, Lopholatilus
