Formatted abstract
The species composition of fishes in intertidal sedimentary pools, free of coral rubble and seagrass, located at Wellington Point and Dunwich, Moreton Bay were studied. Sampling occurred in August and October 1993 and April 1994. A total of 24 species from 12 familes (2377 individuals) was recorded. Shannon-Weiner diversity was 1.82 at Wellington Point and 0.59 for Dunwich. Whiting, Sillago spp. (Cuvier, 1817) was the most abundant species (72.2% of total catch) with the Exquisite Sandy-Goby, Favonigobius exquisitus (Whitely, 1950) (15.2%) the next most abundant. Fishes of economic importance found in the pools included whiting, Sillago spp.; flathead, Platycephalus fuscus; and mullet, sp. Mugilidae.
