Shallow intertidal habitats are recognised as critical for larval and juvenile fish, and are often assumed to function as refuge areas where predation risk is reduced. Yet there is growing evidence that suggest these areas may also be regularly inhabited by large bodied fish and be the site of high levels of juvenile fish predation. In the present study we examined the use of an intermittently available surf zone habitat in tropical northern Australia by a diverse community of large-bodied… CONTINUE READING
