A collection of young scombroid fishes made by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service in 1953 and 1954 in the waters between Cape Hatteras and the Bahama Islands contained 50 specimens. These fish are either from stomachs of six species of pelagic fishes or from collections made with dipnets. The following genera and species were represented: (1) Thunnus atlanticus, (2) Katsuwonus pelamis, (3) Euthynnus alletteratus, (4) Auxis thazard, (5) Sarda sarda (6) Thunnus sp. indet., and (7) Scomberomorus sp. indet. It is inferred that the time of spawning of the various species of scombroids from that area conforms with the time of spawning in the southern portion of the Florida Current and in the Gulf of Mexico.
