The effects of changes in the structural complexity of a seagrass Zostera manna habitat on the densities of juveniles of 3 gobiid fishes, Pterogobius zonoleucus, Chaenogobius heptacanthus and Chasmichthys gulosus, were investigated by field experimentation at Moroiso and Aburatsubo Bays, Miura Peninsula, Japan. Following seagrass manipulation, involving reduction of leaf heights and shoot densities as well as complete removal of seagrass, juvenile densities of all 3 gobiids were found to be… CONTINUE READING
