Abstract
    A deformed male bluefish (553 mm total length, 1698 g), with a plastic band encircling the body obliquely anterior to the spinous dorsal fin and posterior to the pelvic fins, was caught in Chesapeake Bay in 1963. A cut-depressed area of 14×31 mm extended dorso-anteriorly while the ventral skin and flesh were cut and exposed.
