ionthas) and skilletfish, were strongly positively associated with the number of live oysters.
The trophic positions of the hooked mussel, eastern oyster, grass shrimp, skilletfish, and naked goby were elevated at the harvested site compared to the nonharvested site (Fig.
Pelagic source contributions were elevated at the harvested site for all organisms except skilletfish.
The CCA results indicate that the bigclaw snapping shrimp (Alpheus heterochaelis) and estuarine mud crab are associated with fragmented reef habitats exposed to high levels of chlorophyll-a and that the skilletfish and freckled blenny are associated with the presence of shell clusters (larger interstitial spaces) and high densities of live oysters.
Of the 3 dominant resident fish (naked goby, darter goby, and skilletfish) only the naked goby and skilletfish were caught at greater densities within the marsh edge habitat, whereas the darter goby was dominant within the nonvegetated shallow habitat.

Whereas one species was found only on the reef (the skilletfish Gobiesox strumosum), this species was extremely rare and not sufficiently abundant for statistical significance.
Oyster shell serves as spawning substrate for skilletfish (Runyan 1961), Florida blenny Chasmodes saburrae (Peters 1981), feather blenny Hypsoblennius hentz (Breitburg 1999) and frillfin goby Bathygobius soporator (Peters 1983); such fishes select for length and gape of empty oyster shells relative to their own size (Crabtree & Middaugh 1982).
Other fishes occurring frequently in the samples included the feather blenny Hypsoblennius hentz, frillfin goby Bathygobius soporator, skilletfish Gobiesox strumosus, and gulf toadfish Opsanus beta (Table 1).
Other fishes such as the naked goby, striped blenny and skilletfish are also known to lay their eggs on the unfouled, inner surface of articulated oyster shell (Runyan 1961, Breitburg 1999).
For example, the skilletfish (Gobiesox strumosus), feather blenny (Hypsoblennius hentz), and snapping shrimp (Alpheus heterochaelis) have all been previously collected from oyster reefs ranging from the Carolinas to Virginia and Maryland (Breitburg 1999, Coen et al.
