dc.description.abstractA collection of 170 fish remains from an archaeological site on the Silver Strand, immediately west of San Diego Bay. California, represents nine species, all of which are edible: Mustelus californicus, Sardinops sagax, Atherinopsis californiensis, Paralabrax sp.,Roncador stearnsii, Genyonemus lineatus, Cynoscion parvipinnis, Sphyraena argentea, and Pneumatophorusis japonicus. <br />Remains of Cynoscion parvipinnis, a subtropical fish unknown from California in recent years, indicate the occurrence of a former warmwater fauna in this vicinity, probably during more than two centuries. <br />Remains of large Sphyraena argentea and Pneumatophorus japonicus, probably caught in the ocean, suggest aboriginal use of the tule balsa.
