Although it appears that the abundance of several other species (Portunus
xantusii--Xantus' swimming crab, Paralabrax nebulifer--barred sand bass, Menticirrhus undulatas--California corbina, and Pleuronichthys coenosus--C-O turbot) may also be correlated with the 1997-98 El Nino event (Tables 1 and 2), we are not considering these as "new/uncommon species" because they are all regularly found in the local sandy nearshore environment.
The survival and growth performance of swimming crab (Portunus
trituberculatus) juveniles have been reported to correlate with the DHA/EPA ratio in their diets, with both survival and growth decreasing as DHA/EPA ratio increases (Hu et al.
