  • Description:
    "The National Marine Fisheries Service laboratory in Panama City, Florida has been engaged in life history research on recreationally and commercially important species of fishes from the Gulf of Mexico and southeast coast of the United States since 1977. A unique opportunity to sample fishes caught from charter and headboats was available by cooperating with the staff of Captain Anderson's fish house in Panama City. During 1978 and 1979, numerous lengths were measured of reef species caught within fifty miles of Panama City and landed at the fish house. Gonads, stomachs, and aging structures for other aspects of our research were collected at the same time. Circulation of the draft fishery management plan for reef fishes by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council in 1979 called attention to the lack of data on reef species from the Gulf of Mexico. This technical report makes available our length frequency information for 1978 and 1979"--Introduction.
