Mixed fishes metier also had whitemouth croaker as the main catch component but other species such as leatherjacket (Oligoplites spp.), kingcroaker (Menticirrhus americanus) and Jamaica weakfish (Cynoscion jamaicensis) played an important role in the composition of the landings.
These were mostly demersal (e.g., Pogonias cromis (Linnaeus, 1766), Urophycis brasiliensis (Kaup, 1858)) and bottom dwelling species (e.g., Porichthysporossissimus (Cuvier, 1828), Prionotus punctatus (Bloch, 1793), Menticirrhus americanus (Linnaeus, 1766)).
Therefore, the South Atlantic component of the Southeast Area Monitoring and Assessment Program (SEAMAP-SA), as part of its Coastal Survey (a long-term, fishery-independent, shallow-water trawl survey from Cape Canaveral, Florida, to Cape Hatteras, North Carolina), began collecting stomachs from 3 common species of Sciaenidae; weakfish (Cynoscion regalis), southern kingfish (Menticirrhus americanus), and Atlantic croaker (Micropogonias undulatus).
