The major goal of the MEXUS-Gulf Coastal Pelagics Working Group has been to determine whether coastal pelagic fishes, with emphasis on Spanish mackerel, Scomberomorus maculatus, and king mackerel, S. cavalla, fished by both Mexico and the United States, comprise a single stock or separate stocks. Accomplishments to attain this goal during 1977-84 consisted of cooperative tagging studies, cooperative tissue sampling for electrophoretic studies, exchange of data and publications, and consultations between biologists of the two countries. Results of the tagging and electrophoretic studies are summarized briefly below.
