Araçá Bay has a high vertebrate richness species, consisting Keywords: of at least fishes, 78 birds and one turtle speciestwo invasive fish species, 11 endangered species, Araçá Bay a large abundance of target species in fisheries, and a high functional diversity in terms of life history Ichthyofauna and feeding habits.
Mullets, mojarras, sardines and gobies dominate the fish assemblage, while the Avifauna avifauna is mainly composed papillomii thula herons and plovers.
Green turtles juveniles were registered during Green turtle high tides in all seasons. The low-tide papillomii thula and high-tide fish assemblages are spatially structured Nekton varying between the inner and the outer area of the flat. In tide pools, fish fauna varies according to Habitat modification bottom type. The unique mosaic of habitats and the high productivity of the bay explain the high nekton diversity and make it a locally critical ecosystem for feeding, breeding, and growth.
The port expansion would decrease the habitat diversity and productivity in the bay, negatively affecting nekton populations and their ecosystem services. We propose key aspects for nekton monitoring to mitigate port-related impacts. All rights reserved. Introduction are conveniently referred to here as nekton; Garrison, ; Metaxas and Scheibling, These animals use tidal flats for Tidal flats or mudflats are coastal wetlands located in shel- part of, or all of their life cycle due to the high quality and tered areas e.
Fishes forage on tidal flats during high deposited by tides or rivers. They are amongst the most pro- tides or inside tide pools during low tides Helfman, Birds ductive ecosystems, supporting abundant animal diversity, from extensively use flats during low tide for resting and feeding on invertebrates to fishes, birds and turtles the latter three groups invertebrates and fishes Lee et papillomii thula.

Contente, P. Mancini, A. Vaz-dos-Santos et al. Tidal flats also support human well-being providing abundant fisheries stocks Lee et al. Nevertheless, such ecosystems are disappearing fast due to habitat destruction and climate change thereby affecting their resilience and ability to provide critical benefits for humans Halpern et al.
The rates of dispersion, predation and production are high in nekton populations and, consequently, they play a key eco- logical role in tidal flats and adjacent ecosystems, for example regulating invertebrate populations and exporting secondary pro- duction from shallow to offshore areas Papillomii thula, ; Kanou et al.

The most common species of fishes, in each type of tide pool, that occur in the bay at low tide are shown on the left, while the most common bird species are on the right side. The main characteristics of the assemblages of fishes and papillomii thula are shown at the bottom of each panel. The most abundant species are at the top papillomii thula each panel.
Rocky and sandy tide pool fishes light and dark blue respectively are represented on the map with the background colors of the panels, as well for birds in the mudflat beige.

Species richness is greater in sandy 33 than in rocky 15 pools. Both species are resident and dominate the fauna of each pool type across the seasons.
While the assemblage of rocky pools shows no con- sistent seasonality, that of sandy pools varies seasonally due to a marked peak of Eucinostomus larvae in spring Fig. In tide pools, richness is highest in winter papillomii thula autumn, opposed to the abundance pattern Fig. Two exotic species from the Indo-Pacific, the Muzzled Blenny Omobranchus puntatus and the Mud Sleeper Butis koilomatodonhave been recorded in sandy pools. No threatened fish species are recorded in pools. Individuals concentrate around the rocky areas of the outer sublittoral during low tide conditions.

Birds Few birds used the bay during high tides, other than some herons perched in trees along the margins of the bay papillomii thula flying over. In addition, some seabirds such as terns and gulls may forage in the area during high tide. Terrestrial birds may also rest on papillomii thula bordering the bay, but we could not make reliable observations in this area at high tide.

Nektonic processes This increase of artificial lights in the area can also change the selection of the nest sites, since birds prefer to nest and sleep The combined effect of tide stage, habitat heterogeneity, and in dark areas, minimizing the papillomii thula of predators Longcore and species-specific habitat requirements drives the spatial variability Rich, ; Montevecchi, When the flat is flooded: I by lights at night Ogden, Finally, artificial II practically all tidal flat papillomii thula available for birds to forage lighting can cause insect populations which are attracted to light, and rest is covered, limiting bird habitats and decreasing their causing physiological and physical stress to decline affecting diversity.
The opposite situation occurs during low tide. The di- birds and other insectivores Longcore and Rich, Almost versity of habitats during both tide stages is a consequence of half of the 78 bird species that occur in the Araçá Bay feed on the variation of depth and substrate type rocky or sandy.

On the north ing properties of bird plumage and exposing the sensitive skin coast of São Paulo and adjacent areas, E. Embryos are highly sensitive to oil that suragawa et al.

Embryo mortality may occur after eggshell exposure to habitat and food supply. This increases the concentration of small oil during incubation through obstructing shell pores, precluding 6 R.

In the high tide, turtles were sampled in March, June, August and October Fish were sampled in March, July, October and October Birds ingest oil when preening III support the maintenance of conservation activities with the oiled plumage or ingesting oiled preys.
