The NEFSC and SEAMAP indices were chosen because the corresponding surveys showed wide geographic coverage, temporal coverage, or both; have been conducted consistently; and have provided evidence of regular encounters with Atlantic Croaker of different age groups (ASMFC; (1) Appendix 1).

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.

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 trawl survey.
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.
