Abstract: 16 cm) occurred in spring/summer. Significant negative correlations were found between fish abundance and salinity and depth. The close relationship of this species to innermost areas in bays, and the absence of juveniles in sandy beaches, suggest that young-of-the-year use mangrove areas as recruitment sites.]]>

“…The three fish species with the highest IRI values in the franciscana diet (S. rastrifer, G. oceanicus and C. edentulus) have a small size, occur in large schools and show a high abundance in estuaries (aLmeida & BranCo, 2002;SiLva et al, 2003;andrade-tuBino et al, 2008). For the Guiana dolphins, the two fish species with highest IRI values are species of large size and high energy value (M. curema and M. furnieri) (CurCho et al, 2009) that show variations in abundance of adult individuals inside estuarine regions (CaStro & petrere, 2001;CarvaLho et al, 2007).…”

“…Anchovies are recognized as an important trophic link in coastal food chains, since they convert planktonic biomass into forage for higher level consumers (Hildebrand, 1963). Most engraulids spawn at coastal areas in the inner continental shelf, and recruitment occurs often in protected, shallow areas that provide food and shelter against predators (Silva et al, 2003). Adults perform seasonal migrations between estuarine and oceanic areas (MacGregor & Houde, 1996), aggregating in large shoals that are frequently targeted by commercial fisheries.…”

“…This planktivorous species is well tolerant to changes in environmental conditions, being often found at inner zones of coastal bays, where salinity is generally low, temperatures are high, and phytoplankton biomass is high due to the great input of organic waste (Sergipense et al, 1999;Silva et al, 2003;Araújo et al, 2008a). Although the great importance of C. edentulus as fishery resource in coastal bays of Southeastern Brazil, especially on Guanabara Bay where accounted for 69% (ca.13,000 ton) of total landings in 2004, (Jablonski et al, 2006;Araújo et al, 2008a), the ecology of this species is barely known, especially on its reproductive biology (Souza-Conceição et al, 2005).…”

“…However, these fish use the area under the greatest influence by the ocean for recruitment and development (Pessanha et al, 2000). Spatial separation may reflect adaptations to different environmental conditions or a strategy to avoid competition (Silva et al, 2003). In the Caeté estuary, the increase in Engraulidae biomass is likely related to an increased production of plankton toward the mouth of the Amazon River (DeMaster and Pope, 1996;Krumme and Saint-Paul, 2010).…”
