Estuarine and habitat-related differences in growth rates of young-of-the-year winter flounder (Pseudopleuronectes americanus) and tautog (Tautoga onitis
) in three northeastern U.S.
Identification and seasonal size changes of eggs of the labrid fishes, Tautogolabrus adspersus and Tautoga onitis
, of Long Island Sound.
Abstract--Aging of tautog (Tautoga onitis
) has historically required sacrificing fish to obtain opercula and otoliths.
Increasingly complex substrates appeared to support higher abundance of lobster predators (Centopristis striata, Tautoga onitis
, Tautogolabrus adsperus) compared with habitats dominated by sand (pets.
Previous work has demonstrated that abundances of fishes and decapod crustaceans are depressed under large municipal piers (Able et al., 1998), and that growth rates of young-of-the-year (YOY) winter flounder (Pseudo-pleuronectes americanus) and tautog (Tautoga onitis
) are negative (i.e., the fish lose weight) when caged under piers for extended periods (Duffy-Anderson and Able, 1999; Able et al., 1999).
These were the two gadids (Atlantic cod and haddock), the toadfish (Opsanus tau, family Batrachoididae), and the tautog (Tautoga onitis
, family Labridae).
These were spaghetti worm (Ampharetidae, P < 0.01), sheepshead (Archosargus probatocephalus, P < 0.01), blue crab (Callinectes sapidus, P < 0.01), grey snapper (Lutjanus griseus, P < 0.05), gag grouper (Mycteroperca microlepis, P < 0.01), and Atlantic oyster drill (Urosalpinx cinera, P < 0.05) whereas common grass shrimp (Palaemonetes vulgaris) tautog (Tautoga onitis
), common mud snail (Ilyanassa obsoleta), Atlantic mud crab (Panopeus herbstii), naked goby (Gobisoma bosc), clam worm (Nereididae), oyster toad fish (Opsanus tau), spot fin butterfly fish (Chaetodon ocellatus), feather blenny (Hypsoblennius hentzi), American eel (Anguilla rostrata), and purple urchin (Arbacia punctulata) were not significantly different (P > 0.05) between habitats.

Two species common on the middle shelf sites, the scup (Stenotomus chrysops) and the tautog (Tautoga onitis
), were not observed on the deeper sites.
