Summary:
The abundance of fish eggs and young fishes in the tidal portion of the Little Manatee River was monitored on a regular basis during 1988. Collections with fine-meshed nets were made twice each month at six locations ranging between fresh water and the open waters of Tampa Bay. The objectives of the study were to provide a record of the use of the tidal portion of the Little Manatee River by the early stages of coastal fishes; to identify the fishes whose spawning and nursery grounds are most likely to be impacted by changes in the quantity and/or quality of riverine discharge; to identify the seasons when impact on spawning and nursery habitat would be greatest; and to initiate an investigation into the relationship between the quantity and/or quality of riverine discharge and short-term changes in the distribution of the early stages of estuarine-dependent fishes.
