Summary:
To evaluate the relative species abundance and size composition of fish communities among selected habitats in the estuarine and marine waters of Everglades National Park, FL, random and periodic sampling was conducted at five study sites (including Whitewater Bay, Coot Bay, Florida Bay). Special emphasis was placed on the study of juvenile fish associated with open water habitats and fish utilizing red mangrove prop root habitats. Of special concern was the habitat and abundance of spotted seatrout (Cynoscion nebulosus) and gray snapper (Lutjanus griseus). Maps of the sampling areas are included. Discriminant function analyses of data from randomly sampled sites was used to identify environmental characteristics important to juvenile spotted seatrout and gray snapper habitat.
