I think so, but it will take some doing to find out what species
they are.

Go to www.cephbase.org, and click on "Biogeography" on the left. You can search a number of different ways. I just tried the "Species in the Exclusive Economic Zone of:" and then selected Panama. It'll give you a list of all cephs. Gotta sort through them, but at least its some place to start.

Cheers!
