Abstract

Larvae generally began to move into inshore areas at dawn. Numbers began to decline after around 1400 h, dropping markedly at sunset. Increased surface activity in deeper waters also began at dawn, and peaked in mid-afternoon. Larvae may be selecting warmer water to elevate metabolism and hence accelerate growth. -P.J.Jarvis
