Four families (Sparidae, Labridae, Monacanthidae and Platycephalidae) occur widely across Sydney coastal sites (Figure 3, Table 1) and are relatively abundant (by percentage of NISP [number of individual specimens]) at Quadrant, Angophora Reserve, Mount Trefle and Balmoral Beach (Table 2).
3): 1) negative electivity, large wild abundance (Pomacentridae, Labridae, Acanthuridae); 2) moderate positive electivity, moderate to large wild abundance (e.g., Chaetodontidae, Mullidae, Scaridae); and 3) large positive electivity, low wild abundance (Aulostomidae, Monacanthidae).
They possess a typical balistoid (Balistidae, Monacanthidae, and the Ostraciidae) hyoid arch with no hypertrophy of the first branchiostegal ray or the associated hyohyoideus abductor muscle, and the pectoral girdle is unmodified relative to other file fishes (Matsuura 1979; Tyler 1980).
The most heavily represented family was the Serranidae, followed by the Monacanthidae, Pomacentridae, Labridae, Carangidae, Scorpaenidae, Tetraodontidae, and Chaetodontidae.
We grouped the other fishes (Acanthuridae, Monacanthidae, Chaetodontidae, Mullidae, Scaridae, and the labrids Epibelus insidiator, Gomphosis varius, and Coris gaimard) together because they were not observed to actively search for, and raid, nests, although they would consume embryos if they discovered a nest.
Observations of schooling behaviors of filefishes (Monacanthidae), dolphinfish (Coryphaena hippurus), and jacks (Carangidae), and fish-jellyfish associations were also recorded with an underwater video camera.
