Abstract

Eighteen young gag, Mycteroperca microlepis, 61-186 mm F. L., were recorded from Chincoteague Bay, Eastern Shore waters, off Virginia Beach, and within Chesapeake Bay from July to November 1960. Average lengths at progressive collecting periods suggest rapid growth. Coloration and pattern varied somewhat among the specimens.
