NMFS SEAMAP trawl data reports 2 smalltail shark captures, which verifies their presence in the survey area.
Branstetter(8) and NMFS SEAMAP trawl surveys did not report any Caribbean sharpnose captures.
The SEAMAP index during 1972-89 was treated as an unobserved random variable because it was unavailable across that period.
For the SEAMAP index, j = 1 (1990-2008) because the index varied without trend (Fig.

Plankton collections were made in all months of the year during the 23 years of SEAMAP surveys included in our analyses.
The most temporally and spatially consistent sampling effort was conducted during two dedicated SEAMAP plankton surveys: the spring and fall surveys (Fig.
Pellegrin of the NOAA Pascagoula Laboratory kindly provided the offshore shrimp samples from SEAMAP
1996), and a summary of SEAMAP ichthyoplankton data collected on the Mississippi and Alabama shelf during 1982-2002 (ENTRIX, 2006).
For example, only 37 grouper larvae were collected in gulf-wide SEAMAP ichthyoplankton surveys between 1982 and 1999 (>7000 samples) (Lyczkowski-Shultz et al.
The oldest fish sampled was a 424-mm-TL 9-year-old female that was sampled in June 2006 onboard during the SEAMAP
