300 A Practical Handbook for Determining the Ages of Gulf of Mexico Fishes, Third Edition
A Practical Handbook for Determining the Ages of Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic Coast Fishes - Third Edition includes contributions from many more agencies and universities from the Gulf region as well as the Atlantic. A number of techniques and species are described beyond the original scope of the First and Second Editions of the manual. We have tried to provide information on all the various techniques that have proven to be useful or unsuccessful for each of the species covered and ensured that validation is included wherever possible. It is hoped that the wide variety of species will allow anyone interested in exploring the ageing of fish species new to them or their agency to find common techniques and accounts which will shorten the time required to pursue something that can be a trial and error process. The most widely used methodologies and approaches are included in each species account but additional methods and details can be found in the appendices.
292 Stakeholder Workshop on Management Reference Points for Gulf Menhaden Fisheries
In an effort to generate appropriate reference points for Gulf menhaden management, the Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commission hosted a workshop of stakeholders to begin to address the goals of management to meet the needs of the fishery and the associated fishery participants. This was the second workshop in the series which tested a number of the reference points and control rules for the fishery explored during the first workshop.
287 Management Profile for Gulf of Mexico Cobia
A comprehensive review of the biology of a species or species group and includes a description of the fisheries as well as discussion on the distribution, habitat, and any knowledge of genetics specific to the Gulf Region. The profile summarizes any existing state management including laws, regulations, and policies as well a description of the social and economic importance of the species. A biological profile highlights any knowledge gaps that may exist which could limit future management. A management profile identifies data gaps which may hinder future determination of stock status and effective management in the region.
285 Workshop to Assess Options For Management Reference Points for Gulf Menhaden Fisheries
In an effort to generate appropriate reference points for Gulf menhaden management, the Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commission hosted a workshop of stakeholders to begin to address the goals of management to meet the needs of the fishery and the associated fishery participants. The workshop was the first of several that will occur as we explore reference points and potential harvest control rules for the fishery.

243 The Blue Crab Fishery of the Gulf of Mexico: A Regional Management Plan 2015 Revision
A comprehensive review of the biology of the blue crab and includes a description of the fisheries as well as discussion on the distribution, habitat, and genetics of this species in the Gulf. The plan provides an overview of the state management authorities, laws, regulations, and policies as well a description of the social and economic importance of the fishery. Finally, the plan includes a stock status based upon the results of Gulf-wide assessment for blue crab populations in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
240 The Gulf Menhaden Fishery of the Gulf of Mexico: A Regional Management Plan 2015 Revision
A comprehensive review of the biology of Gulf menhaden and includes a description of the fisheries as well as discussion on the distribution, habitat, and genetics of this species in the Gulf.
