Survival of Year-Class O redfish (Sciaenops ocellata) and southern flounder (Paralichthys lethostigma) was high and good standing crops of both species were present during late fall. Trends in the relative availablity of adult game fish were not clear as drag seine data were weak and incomparable. Commercial landings decreased slightly from 1963 figures, due mainly to a reduction in the speckled trout (Cynoscion nebulosus) catch.
