Abstract

The ichthyoplankton collections of SEFCAR (Southeast Florida and Caribbean Recruitment Project) contain a highly diverse mixture of larvae from fishes of the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, Florida Keys, and the Florida Current. Larvae from 91 families of fishes were collected near the Florida Keys in May and June 1989. The most abundant families were Bregmacerotidae, Myctophidae, Gobiidae, Bothidae, Gonostomatidae, Serranidae, Scombridae, Clupeidae, and Carangidae in that order. Each of these families made up >2% of the total larvae. The most speciose families were the Myctophidae (31), Serranidae (12), Ophichthidae (8), and Scombridae (7); Congridae, Labridae, and Paralichthyidae all had six species. Of 68 Florida Keys fish familes associated with coral reefs, the authors collected larvae of 43 families during one week of sampling. The high biodiversity of fish larvae near the Florida Keys may be a sensitive indicator for the effects of climate change and human impacts on the regional fish fauna. -from Authors
