Abstract
Although Winyah Bay is an important habitat for penaeid shrimp, blue crabs, and numerous finfishes, its importance as a nursery area and its fishery potential in terms of abundance of fishes and decapod Crustacea have never been assessed. This paper provides information on the species assemblages, spatial and temporal abundance, and distributional patterns of fishes and decapod crustaceans from the Winyah Bay estuarine system.
