Se identificarondas tres especies endemicas de la Provincia de Cortes; el chano norteno Micropogonias megalops (Gilbert, 1890), la platija ocelada Pleuronichthys ocellatus Starks & Thompson, 1910 y el pejerrey sardina Leuresthes
sardina (Jenkins & Evermann, 1889).
Argulus melanostictus and other parasitic crustaceans on the California grunion, Leuresthes
tenuis (Osteichthyes: Atherinidae).
Thompson, with his wife Julia, also published in 1919 a pioneering study of the spawning behavior of the California grunion, Leuresthes
tenuis (Thompson and Thompson, 1919).
During the remarkable spawning runs of California Grunion Leuresthes
tenuis (Teleostei: Atherinopsidae), thousands of these silverside fish emerge from the ocean and actively move about on beaches to lay their eggs in the damp sand (Spratt, 1986).

There are marked exceptions, however, like the California grunion (Leuresthes
tenuis) which does not grow during its spring to summer spawning period, making the timing of opaque and translucent growth zone formation completely out of phase from what is expected (Spratt 1971; Fritzsche et al.
Northern anchovy was the most abundant fish species comprising 62% of the total catch, followed by topsmelt at 22%, Pacific sardine at 5%, slough anchovy, 2%, California grunion (Leuresthes
tenuis), 2% and shiner surfperch at about 2% of the total catch.
