Fish larvae belonging to 24 families and the suborder Blennioidea were collected from Puget Sound and the Pacific Ocean off British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon during April and May 1967. All families and the Blennioidea were present in oceanic waters, but only 13 families and the Blennioidea were present in Puget Sound. The most abundant families in the oceanic area were Scorpaenidae, Myctophidae, and Pleuronectidae, whereas in Puget Sound the most abundant families were Gadidae, Pleuronectidae, and Scorpaenidae. Variations in composition and numbers of larvae in the catch were associated with area, water depth, and water temperature, and time of day at which the collections were made.
