The transport of larval coral reef fishes to juvenile habitat inherently requires that they survive the planktonic journey; however, the processes governing survival — particularly those related to feeding — are not well known. Monthly sampling across the Straits of Florida allowed for analyses of the diets and diet variability of several co-occurring taxa of coral reef fish larvae from the families Serranidae, Lutjanidae, Mullidae, Pomacentridae, Labridae, Scaridae and Acanthuridae.
