No obvious pattern of spatial distribution was identified for Abudefduf saxatilis. Except for B.
This result demonstrated that sclerites of this octocoral from three depths are active in defense against a diverse array of generalist fishes, including, in order of decreasing importance, Abudefduf saxatilis (Linnaeus, 1758), Haemulon au-rolineatum Cuvier, 1829, Haemulon steindacneri (Jordan and Gilbert, 1882), Halichoeres poeyi (Steindachner, 1867), and Chaetodon striatus Linnaeus, 1758 (Ferreira et al., 2001, 2004).
For two species (Stegastes leucostictus and Abudefduf saxatilis), the length of larval life differs between two published sources; both are listed in table 1.
The most abundant species was Diplodus argenteus, followed by Haemulon aurolineatum, Stephanolepis hispidus and Abudefduf saxatilis. These four species accounted together for 69.7% of total abundance (Table I).
La especie Acanthurus coeruleus (Bloch & Schneider 1801) presento 1 896 peces y una frecuencia de 98.4%, y la especie Abudefduf saxatilis (Linnaeus 1758) con una abundancia de 1 513 y frecuencia de 92.1% (Cuadro 2).

Otro factor no descartable en la composicion ictica de estos pastos marinos es la posible conectividad con otros ecosistemas, tal es el caso de La Brea la cual esta muy cercana a un gran complejo arrecifal en un sector denominado El Toro, conexion que se evidencia por la continua presencia de especies caracteristicas de zonas arrecifales como el sargento Abudefduf saxatilis, entre otros, lo cual puede variar e inclusive incrementar la estructura ictica del sistema (De Grado et al.
