Demersal nekton communities in the Buccaneer Oil Field during research year 1978-79 were dominated by macrocrustaceans, particularly sugar shrimp, Trachypenaeus similis. The most abundant fish was the shoal flounder, Syacium gunteri. The effects of substrate and platform type on seasonal and areal distributional patterns are provided for dominate, demersal species. Several important species, including sugar shrimp, were indicated more abundant at production platforms than at control structures having the same bottom type.
