It is still unclear if there is continuity between the Gulf of Mexico and US Atlantic coast distribution of the species (Chapman et al., 1999) and the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (GMFMC) recommends further studies to understand exchange rates (SEDAR, 2014). This profile refers to the Northern Gulf of Mexico assessment unit.
