Abstract PAULY, D., V. SAMBILAY, JR. and S. OPITZ. 1993. Estimates of relative food consumption by fish andinvertebrate populations, required for modelling the Bolinao reefecosystem, Philippines, p. 236-251. In V.Christensen and D. Pauly (eds.) Trophic models of aquatic ecosystems. ICLARM Conf. Proc. 26, 390 p. are relevant aspects of ecosystem andmultispecies fisheries management (Palomaresand Pauly 1989 and see contributions in thisvolume).This paper (of which Sambilay et al. 1992 isa summary… 
High biomass and production but low energy transfer efficiency of Caribbean parrotfish : implications for trophic models of coral reefs
It is argued that the low estimate for trophic role of scarids on the fringing coral reef of Bonaire is more realistic for coral reefs supporting high scarid biomass and explains better the many reports of coral destruction at exploited reefs.
Using SCUBA and Snorkeling Methods to Obtain Model Parameters for an Ecopath Network Model for Calabash Caye, Belize, Central America.
We have been collecting biological data for the construction of a food web model of Calabash Caye, Belize using Ecopath with Ecosim software. Characterization of the mangrove seagrass and coral reef
Contribution of ecosystem analysis to investigating the effects of changes in fishing strategies in the South Brazil Bight coastal ecosystem
Ecosystem effects of recent changes in fishing strategies in the South Brazil Bight (SBB) area, including increasing squid catches by shrimp bottom trawlers and fishing for young sardines as bait,
Weight-Length relationship and relative condition of the holothurian Isostichopus fuscus at Espíritu Santo Island, Gulf of California, México
The weight-length relationship showed that I. fuscus grew allometrically at the study site, and peaked at 21 cm length, the size of first maturity, which may indicate that the condition of individuals is slowly improving with age up to a point and then decreases gradually, a possible evidence of aging and the first indication of senescence in holothurians.
Energy flow and trophic structure of Galápagos shallow rocky reef systems along a gradient of productivity and artisanal fisheries
This thesis aims to better understand how changes in primary production, temperature and fishing intensity within a biogeographic regional influence the trophic structure and the diversity and


Cephalopods of the world : an annotated and illustrated catalogue of species of interest to fisheries
This is the third in the FAO series of worldwide annotated and i l lustrated catalogues of major groups of organisms that enter marine fisheries and provides a comprehensive and illustrated key to al1 the 43 cephalopod families, with a glossary of technical terms and measurements.
Food conversion efficiency in the shrimp Metapenaeus monoceros (Fabricius) fed on different foods
The main prerequisites of shrimp culture is the selection of such a food which should give the maximum conversion efficiency resulting into fast growth of shrimps, and it can be seen that the best diet from gross r,rowth efficiency (PIC) has the lowest 'food cop version ratio'.
A multiple regression model for prediction the food consumption of Marine Fish populations
An empirical multiple regression model for prediction of Q/B is presented, which explains nearly 75% of the variance in the data set used, which includes myctophids and tunas, flatfishes, rabbitf fishes, and other groups from both tropical and temperate waters.

Some aspects of recolonization of coral rocks in Eilat (Gulf of Aqaba) by fish populations after poisoning
Recovery of fish populations was complete 10 to 12 months after the poisoning, it is believed that this is due to the relatively small size of the contaminated area and the survival of most invertebrates that constitute an important part of the biotope of the fish.
I. The ECOPATH Model and Its Application to French Frigate Shoals
A simple model termed ECOPATH is pre- sented which estimates mean annual biomass, produc- tion, and consumption for components of an ecosystem. To use the model, the ecosystem must be partitioned
Diel Activity Patterns and Foraging Dynamics of the Sea Urchin Tripneustes ventricosus in a Tropical Seagrass Community and a Reef Environment (Virgin Islands)
The high rate of movement in seagrass beds may represent an innate behavioral adaptation to predation by night-active helmet conchs (Cassis spp.) and fitness optimization by T. ventricosus may have been achieved by minimizing the predation risk during night hours.
Growth, reproduction and mortality of the sea hare Dolabella auricularia (Gastropoda: Aplysiidae) in the Central Visayas, Philippines
The growth parameters W∞ and K of the von Bertalanffy growth equation were estimated from size-frequency data of the sea hare Dolabella auricularia using an objective, computer-based method. The
Longevity, life history, and relative body wall size in sea urchins
The positive relationship between survival probability and relative body wall size supports the hypothesis that survival is related to allocation of resources to maintenance and the significane of longevity in urchins probably is that it isrelated to the predictability of survival of prereproductivemore individuals.
