Abstract

Three very young crevalle jack, ranging from 38 to 41 mm total length, emitted a burst of rapid, short, rasping croaks upon being landed in a beach seine out of the ocean surf. Dissection revealed well-developed upper and lower pharyngeal teeth indicating that sounds were produced as in the adults.
