In northern (~18-30[degrees]S) Chile (only 650 km east of our study sites), pomacentrids, haemulids, and cheilodactylids dominate the fish assemblages (Angel & Ojeda, 2001; Perez-Matus et al., 2007), and similar families dominate the Peruvian coasts (~12[degrees]S) (Garate & Pacheco, 2004), while notothenids dominate the southern Chilean (~50[degrees]S) fish faunas (Moreno & Jara, 1984).
