Abstract
"Anglers were interviewed while fishing for summer flounder, Paralichthys dentatus, along the New Jersey coast from party boats. Mean seasonal catch rates for full-day and half-day anglers were 3.15 and l .86 summer flounder per man per trip, respectively, from 19 June to 1 September 1978. Other fish species made up less than 10 percent of the catch. A total of 828 summer flounder were measured and ages were determined for 427 specimens. Analysis of the age-length data indicates that /I +, 1Jf +, lV +, V +, and >V + age summer flounder made up 4.3, 73.0, 20.3, l.8, and 0.6 percent of the catch, respectively."
