Chesapeake Bight Black sea bass, pinfish, Lagodon rhomboides; scup, cunner
, red hake, gray triggerfish, black grouper, Mycteroperca bonaci; smooth dogfish, Mustelus canis; summer flounder, scads, Decapterus sp.; bluefish, and amberjack, Seriola dumerili, have been reported as common over these reefs (Feigenbaum et al., 1985; Chee (1)).
In response to Tautogolabrus adspersus (cunner
), incorporation of MM was also significantly increased (Fig.
In this article, we report on the correlation between measures of reproductive output in laboratory studies with adult cunner
(Tautogolabrus adspersus) and the widely used indicator of estrogen exposure, male plasma vitellogenin expression.
Responses of supramedullary/dorsal cells to depolarizing current pulses and to electrical stimulation of the skin on the right operculum were recorded from cunner
, 10.5 [+ or -] 1.2 cm (mean [+ or -] SD; n = 22) in body length.
Physiological effects of tricaine on the supramedullary/dorsal neurons of the cunner
, Tautogolabrus adsgersus.
Responses of supramedullary/dorsal cells to depolarizing current pulses were recorded from cunner
, 8-13.9 cm in body length; the fish were either under general or local anesthesia.
Because of difficulties in differentiating early developmental stages of two species groups, eggs were lumped into either of two groups: 1) CHW (namely, cod (Gadus morhua L.), haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus L.) and witch flounder (Glyptocephalus cynoglossus L.) or 2) CYT (cunner
(Tautogolabrus adspersus L.), yellowtail flounder (Limanda ferruginea, Storer 1839)).
Seasonal dispersal and habitat selection of cunner
, Tautogolabrus adspersus, and young tautog, Tautoga onitis, in Fire Island Inlet, Long Island, New York.
The somata of these neurons in the cunner
, Tautogolabrus adspersus, are arranged in a single, median, longitudinal row, from the posterior end of the fissura rhomboidalis through the anterior portion of the spinal cord (1).

In addition, several species that were present in 1997, including American eel (Anguilla rostrata), capelin (Mallotus villosus), fourbeard rockling (Enchelyopus cimbrius), Atlantic tomcod (Microgadus tomcod), cunner
(Tautogolabrus adspersus), Atlantic mackerel (Scomber scombrus), alligatorfish (Aspidophoroides monopterygius), windowpane flounder (Scophthalmus aquosus), and American plaice (Hippoglossoides plattessoides), did not occur in the 1998 collections.
Thirty-five to forty of these neurons are arranged in a single, median, longitudinal row, from the posterior end of the fissura rhomboidalis through the anterior portion of the spinal cord of the cunner
, Tautogolabrus adspersus (3).
