                         distribution of Serranidae larvae along the Southeastern Brazilian 
                         Bight (SBB, approximately 22 degrees S and 28 degrees S), and 
                         investigates how environmental and biological factors influence 
                         the larval distribution. Ichthyoplankton samples were collected in 
                         10 oceanographic cruises conducted from 1975 to 1981. Serranidae 
                         larvae were identified into 15 species, including 11 genera and 
                         four subfamilies. Except for Diplectrum formosum, which was widely 
                         distributed throughout the SBB, Hyporthodus spp. and Baldwinella 
                         vivanus were distributed in the southern portion of the SBB, while 
                         other species were distributed mainly in the northern portion of 
                         the SBB, inside the 200 m isobath. Local depth, latitude, distance 
                         from the closest island and salinity were factors that influenced 
                         significantly on the distribution and abundance of the most 
                         abundant taxa D. formosum, Diplectrum spp., Serranus spp. and 
                         Mycteroperca spp. Significant progress was made in identifying 
                         grouper larvae from the SBB (Epinephelus mono, Epinephelus itajara 
                         and Hyporthodus nigritus).",
