A Review of Estuarine Ichthyology in South Africa over the Past 50 Years




Progress in South African estuarine ichthyology between 1946 and 1995 is reviewed. The early estuary surveys of the 1950s and 1960s resulted in the compilation of species lists for individual systems. but contained very little biological or ecological information on fishes. These surveys were superseded by both autecological and synecological srudies in the 1970s and 1980s, which yielded descriptive and process-orientated information on a wide variety of species. Estuarine research during the 1990s has focused increasingly at the community level. with several review papers on the life-history styles of groups of estuarine-associated fishes being published.
