Movements in the southern tropical areas of the western North Atlantic and Caribbean Sea are typically to the west, with fish traveling the north shores of the boundary island at a slower pace than those in the Caribbean. These typically take the following forms:
A. westward along the Atlantic shore of the northern island of the Caribbean and up the U.S. East Coast;
B. westward along the southern shore of the northern Caribbean island toward the Yucatan Straits;
C. between the Caribbean Sea and western North Atlantic using passages between islands; and
D. movement within the territorial waters of the Bahamas.
