Algal cover in mangroves affects distribution and predation rates by carnivorous fishes

Abstract:

Distribution and survival of fish are influenced by benthic habitat and complexity. While many studies have investigated the effects of algal cover on fishes in reef habitats, comparatively less is known regarding this relationship in mangrove habitats. Possible links between substrate macro-algal cover and fish distribution were studied in a Caribbean mangrove lagoon via visual surveys and algal removal experiments. In addition, the effects of algae on relative predation were tested by calcu...
