Abstract

Association between Juvenile Carangid Fish with the Jellyfish Aurelia Sp. and a Floating Plastic Bag

Understanding how juveniles of the commercially important carangid species are associated with floating substrata is important to surveys aimed at potential effects on fisheries, species-habitats relationships and human impacts. Herein, the first record of association between the juvenile carangid fishes Caranx crysos, the jellyfish, Aurelia sp. and a floating plastic bag is reported in tropical rocky shores, northeastern Brazil.
