Summary:
The estuaries of south Florida are valuable and productive. It is well known that these shallow bays provide feeding and nursery areas for the young of many commercial and game fish species and that they are vital to the continued maintenance of many valuable fisheries. Surprisingly little is known, however, concerning the ecology of juvenile fishes occupying inshore areas in South Florida, and knowledge of the ecology of fishes utilizing mangrove habitats is particularly inadequate. As such areas are increasingly threatened by south Florida's rapidly expanding population, the need for quantitative studies to assess the relative value of various mangrove habitat types and their importance to the biota is at once apparent.
