The objective of this project, scheduled for initiation in October 1988, is to determine the feeding success of larvae of various fish species collected in the critical habitats of the lower Roanoke River and western Albemarle Sound from 1982 to 1986. Information obtained by examination of these preserved specimens will be compared to the zooplankton community present at the same time and location. These analyses will be compared to results obtained for larval striped bass feeding success during the same period. In Year 1 of this study, we will examine larvae collected in years 1982, 1983, 1984, and a portion of 1985, then compare the data obtained with the historical zooplankton data base stored in the ECU mainframe computer. In Year 2, we will complete the study by examination of years 1985 and 1986. It is important that all five years of the collection be used to ascertain the effects of water flow (i.e., discharge from the Roanoke Rapids Reservoir) on larval fish distribution and feeding success. Volume II contains Appendices of tables.
