Role of macroalgal structure in the distribution and abundance of a temperate reef fish
Marine Ecology Progress Series
Habitat structure can dramatically influence patterns of distribution and abundance of reef fishes. On temperate reefs, much of this structure consists of macroalgae, especially large kelps. I explored the role of such algae, and in particular the structural features of the giant kelp Macrocystis pyrifera, in the distribution and abundance of the kelp perch Brachyistius frenatus. Several measures of the abundance of M. pyrifera were positively related to the density of kelp perch. Andoi:10.3354/meps113279 fatcat:uh6fl7huczhhpo46kfriwrttgu
