Abstract:

It is intended that this key will be useful in identifying the species of fishes normally occurring in Mississippi Sound. In addition, certain species commonly landed at Mississippi ports, but not found within the Sound, are included. No attempt is made to include fishes commonly occurring in fresh waters but often taken in brackish waters of Mississippi Sound, as these fishes are adequately keyed elsewhere Eddy 1969. Certain species which occur within the limits of Mississippi Sound may be inadvertently omitted. Some occasional stragglers into the area are included, although they may be taken only rarely. Some discrepancies in nomenclature may occur, but nomenclature and systematic arrangement generally follow that of Bailey et al 1970.
