Seagrass and Shoal of Fish

Hardy head silversides (Atherinomorus lacunosus) are abundant fish in shallow water seagrass meadows throughout the Indo-Pacific that often form shoals. They feed primarily on zooplankton and small benthic invertebrates, and are an important part of the seagrass food web because they make an excellent food source for larger fish species.
