Abstract
Larvae of the western rock lobster (Panulirus cygnus) that occur in the south-east Indian Ocean offshore of Western Australia have been found to be in poorer nutritional condition in anticyclonic compared with cyclonic mesoscale eddies. The reason for this is unknown, but culture-based experiments have shown that diet composition and water temperature are key determinants of phyllosoma health and survival. Whether differences in prey composition are the cause of poor phyllosoma condition in situ was tested in the present study by high-throughput sequencing of 18S rDNA amplified from the gut contents of 48 lobster larvae from two cyclonic and two anticyclonic edd...
