  author={Michael Lowry and Iain M. Suthers},
Strip transect surveys of the large temperate rocky reef fish Cheilodactylus fuscus revealed sizeand sex-structured populations across seasons and 3 conditions of wave exposure, from an estuary to the open coast. Large, mostly male, fish (>30 cm fork length) predominated on the open coast and in deeper water (>10 m), while smaller fish predominated in the more protected estuarine areas and in the subtidal regions (<5 m), particularly during the winter to spring recruitment period. Aggregations… CONTINUE READING
