Abstract Sand seatrout (Cynoscion arenarius) and silver seatrout (C. nothus) occur in high numbers in the Gulf of Mexico. The two species can not be easily identifi ed from one another, and are not generally separated to species by most recreational anglers, commercial fi shermen, and even some fi shery samplers. Sand seatrout are commonly found in estuarine and shallow offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico from southwest Florida to the Bay of Campeche, Mexico (Sutter and McIlwain 1987), and on the Atlantic coast of the United States at least as far north as Doboy Sound, Georgia. Silver seatrout are commonly found in offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico and western Atlantic Ocean from Chesapeake Bay to the Bay of Campeche, Mexico.
