  • Abstract. In-situ behaviour of settlement-stage larvae (10–30 mm) of four coral-reef fishes – Acanthurustriostegus, Chromisviridis, Neoniphonargenteus and Ptereleotris sp. – differed between lagoon and ocean at Rangiroa Atoll, Tuamotu Islands, French Polynesia. Divers released 130 larvae individually in midwater, and recorded larval swimming speed, depth and direction. All species swam faster than average currents, and C. viridis swam faster in the lagoon than in the ocean. Vertical… CONTINUE READING
