Larval fish community structure along the west coast of Baja California during and after the El Niño event (1983)
Abstract:The present study deals with the changes in the larval fish community structure off the west coast of Baja California resulting from the relaxation of the environmental changes induced by the 1983 El Niño event up to August 1985. Larval fish assemblages defined two sampling station clusters, as could be determined from the corresponding dendrograms. Their distribution pattern was primarily influenced by spawning area selection, but seasonal and interannual changes which appeared to be related with the ocean dynamics during El Niño events, were also important.
