The information collected was mainly based upon general knowledge of the ecology of the different species or on the experience of the scientists studying the estuarine populations. However, some of the information was reinforced by scientific data of occurrence of the different life stages of fish species in the specified habitats, on data of the feeding ecology of the species, and on data of egg and larval surveys. In order to distinguish between these two qualitatively different types of information, the habitat use information that was supported by hard data is given in brackets in the table.
