Temporal patterns in a fish assemblage of a semiarid mangrove zone in Madagascar
TLDR
The species overlap between the SarodranoMangrove fauna and the adjacent coral reef fauna is particularly weak with six species in common and shows that the mangrove plays only a very limited nursery role for coral reef species.
Composition and seasonal dynamics of postlarval and juvenile fishes in the Sundarbans mangrove waters, Bangladesh
The composition and temporal distribution of the postlarval and juvenile fishes in five river systems of Sundarbans mangrove water with different salinities were studied. Monthly or fortnightly day
Seasonal and environmental influences on recruitment patterns and habitat usage among resident and transient fishes in a World Heritage Site subtropical estuary.
TLDR
The results support enforcing spatio-temporal restrictions to minimize anthropogenic activities within statutory (but not always enforced) protected areas and reiterate the need to identify and understand biotic and abiotic effects on estuarine ichthyofaunal distributions and abundances as a precursor to their management.
Characteristics of the fish assemblages of soft substrata and reefs in northwestern Australia and their relationships with latitude and various factors
The overarching aim of this thesis was to provide the first quantitative account of the characteristics of the ichthyofaunas over the soft substrata and reefs of inshore waters along a continuous
Spatial and temporal variation in fish community structure of a marine embayment in Zanzibar, Tanzania
Spatial and temporal variation in the fish community structure were studied in a tropical non-estuarine embayment in Chwaka Bay, Zanzibar (Tanzania). Fish samples were collected bi-monthly (at each
Refugees or ravenous predators: detecting predation on new recruits to tropical estuarine nurseries
Many of the most abundant small and juvenile fishes within shallow water estuarine nursery habitats consume other fish to some degree but have rarely been considered as potentially important
Abundance, recruitment and residency of two sparids in an intermittently open estuary in South Africa
The recruitment of distinct year-class cohorts in two sparid species, Rhabdosargus holubi and Lithognathus lithognathus, were linked to records of daily mouth state in the intermittently open East

Mangroves as nursery sites: comparisons of the abundance and species composition of fish and crustaceans in mangroves and other nearshore habitats in tropical Australia
TLDR
The results of the present study indicate the importance of mangroves as nursery sites for commercially exploited fish stocks elsewhere in South-East Asia.
Mangrove fish-communities in tropical Queensland, Australia: Spatial and temporal patterns in densities, biomass and community structure
TLDR
Comparison of fish species composition in this and three other mangrove estuaries in the region revealed significant geographic and temporal (seasonal) variation in fish-community structure.
The fish community of an East African mangrove creek
TLDR
A discrepancy between the catch composition of larvae and juveniles suggests that species that use the creek as a nursery area enter the system principally at a post-larval/ juvenile stage of development.
Community structure and zoogeographic affinities of the coastal fishes of the Dampier region of north-western Australia.
TLDR
Both mangroves and open shores have a diversity of species typical of Indo-west Pacific coastal waters but the physical conditions have modified the community structure both to exclude many families that prefer areas of higher turbidity and reduced salinity, and to include others that usually occur only in clear waters.
Species composition, community structure and zoogeography of fishes of mangrove estuaries in the Solomon Islands
TLDR
The role of the estuaries as nursery grounds for coral reef species was assessed and found to be insignificant, but they are used as feeding grounds by mobile piscivorous species and the fauna is typical of such mangrove systems throughout the region.
Ecology of juvenile King George whiting Sillaginodes punctatus (Cuvier & Valenciennes) (Pisces: Perciformes) in Western Port, Victoria
TLDR
The growth rates, feeding and habitat preferences of juvenile S. punctatus over seagrass flats (Zostera muelleri and Heterozostera tasmanica) in Western Port, Victoria, were studied and young 0+ age group fish were found to inhabit heavily grassed areas of the seagRass flats, whilst older fish preferred lightly grassed or bare, muddy areas.
ABUNDANCE, DIET AND PREDATORS OF JUVENILE BANANA PRAWNS, PENAEUS-MERGUIENSIS, IN A TROPICAL MANGROVE ESTUARY
TLDR
Young barramundi, Lates calcarifer (Bloch), were the most important predators on juvenile P. merguiensis, with prawns making up 22% by volume of their diets, and polychaetes and fragments of large crustaceans were important items in the diet.
Alternative Non-estuarine Nursery Habitats for some Commercially and Recreationally Important Fish Species of South-western Australia
TLDR
The main conclusion of this study is that for these species, the inshore marine environments of south-western Australia provide otherwise unavailable alternative nursery areas to those traditionally found in estuaries.
Food, Predation Risk, and Microhabitat Selection in a Marsh Fish Assemblage
TLDR
It is concluded that two mechanisms operate in the stream subtidal to give rise to the greater fish abundance at marsh surface sites adjacent to depositional areas where (1) the availability of benthic invertebrate prey is greatest and (2) predator pressure is less.
