The foraging ecology of two temperate marine gobies (Pisces: Gobiidae) was studied in rocky subtidal habitats off Santa Catalina Island, California. The bluebanded goby, Lythrypnus dalli, foraged from exposed ledges and fed on planktonic and benthic prey, although planktonic prey were more important in diets by number and weight. The more cryptic zebra(More)
Although widely distributed on rocky reefs at Santa Catalina Island (southern California, USA), the small, substrate-oriented fish, Lythrypnus dalli, often reaches its highest densities in areas of extreme vertical relief where the sea urchin, Centrostephanus coronatus, is common. Through surveys and manipulative field experiments, we examined the extent to(More)
