    Fish families following Randall's book, but with updated, expanded, and revised species lists excluding elasmobranchs, but including numerous species found in non-reef habitats (if the family has reef-associated members); also excluding some sets of deep-water species (over ~30 m depth).   Just beneath the twinkling, satin surface of the Caribbean, you find schools of fish of a thousand different shapes and surprising variety of finned friends is one of the reasons people get hooked on scuba diving. To identify some of the most common and interesting reef fish in the Caribbean, Florida, and the Western Atlantic, look for their distinctive characteristics.

    Four groups of fish are considered: West Pacific species of Acanthurus and Naso and West Pacific scarids of the genera Chlorurus and Scarus (Table 3). For Acanthurus and Naso, respectively, sexual maturity is achieved at 6 and 15% of T max. For the scarids the estimate is 19%. For the acanthurids 86 and 85% of size at L ∞ is achieved by. general-purpose paper!ii~ii~i!i of the new serum protein scanner, recording colori- method and for more informa- meter and recording tion on the new Spinco Model R;.

    Nonindigenous Occurrences: In Florida, a single individual was observed off Pompano Beach in (REEF ). One individual was captured in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Greece in (Giovos et al. ).. Table 1. States with nonindigenous occurrences, the earliest and latest observations in each state, and the tally and names of HUCs with observations†. Blue tang surgeonfish occurs Western Atlantic from New York and Bermuda to the Gulf of Mexico and south to Brazil, as well as in the eastern Atlantic near Ascension Island. Extremely abundant around Virgin Islands. Habitat. Found in tropical shallow waters, coral reefs and inshore grassy or rocky habitats as deep as feet (40 m).

They are conspicuous residents of shallow coral reefs. Locally some surgeonfish are important food fishes. Introduction. Ecosystem-based fisheries-management (EBFM) is increasingly being used in the United States (U.S.), including in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) (Levin et al., ; Samhouri et al., ; Grüss et al., a; Harvey et al., ).Producing distribution maps for marine organisms is a critical step in the implementation of EBFM (Mace et al., ; MSFCMA, ).

A peaceful herbivorous fish, hiding a redoubtable scalpel-like spine Acanthuridae (a family comprising surgeonfish -or tangs- and unicornfish) have in common a scalpel-like thin sharp blades located at the base of their tail.

In case of danger, they draw those blades and use their tail to defend themselves.

It is edible, and occasionally marketed fresh, [2] but more often they are used as bait or in the aquarium trade.Lone fishermen of Campeche, Mexico catch Pampano, as it called there, from piers, small launches, and jetties, since its habitat in the Gulf of Mexico is along sandy beaches with calm waters.

The fish also makes an attractive target for Brown Pelicans, which can be seen dive-bombing to catch it from heights of two or three stories into the.
