Similar to the other estuaries with stations located in seagrass and nearshore sandy areas, the numerical dominate juvenile fish in Choctawhatchee Bay (1992-1995) were pinfish (Lagodon rhomboides), spot (Leiostomus xanthurus), pigfish (Orthopristis chrysoptera), and tidewater silverside (Menidia spp.) Although juvenile ladyfish were not captured in Choctawhatchee Bay, adult ladyfish are found in Choctawhatchee Bay; thus, it is presumable that if sampling stations were located within or near the protected bayous or creeks surrounding the northern sections of Choctawhatchee Bay, instead of the open bay areas, then juvenile ladyfish could possibly have been located and collected.

In the field these factors generally coincide because the dominant sparid fishes in our system (including both Diplodus holbrooki and Lagodon rhomboides) feed heavily on both amphipods (Adams 1976b, Nelson 1979b, Stoner 1980a, Darcy 1985a, b) and red and green algae (Hay 1986, Hay et al.

Each section of the tank received one of three species of organisms with potential for site disturbance that were commonly seen at the transplant sites: thinstripe hermit crab Clibanarius vittatus, blue crab Callinectes sapidus, and pinfish Lagodon rhomboides. Crabs have been cited as bioturbators by Fonseca (1994), and both Callinectes and Lagodon consume plant material (Stoner 1980; Laughlin 1982).
