Description: Coastal and Offshore Resources Research Center, Taiwan Fishery Research Institute, Kaohsiung, Taiwan. A total of 8459 larval fish were collected in the southern East China Sea during the winter northeasterly monsoon season and the summer southwesterly monsoon seasons in 2008. They were composed of 184 species belonging to 105 families and 162 genera. The abundance in terms of CPUE (number of individuals/1000 m3) of the larvae was about six times higher in the southwesterly monsoon season than that in the northeasterly monsoon season. The primary environmental factors affecting the larval abundance were found to be water temperature in the northeasterly monsoon season but food availability in the southwesterly monsoon season. Three larval fish assemblages were recognized; the inshore assemblage, the offshore assemblage, and the summer coastal assemblage. The distribution and species composition of the larvae in the assemblages reflected the hydrographic conditions and water currents resulted from the seasonal monsoons.
