Characterize M. cyprinoides data from a series of fishery-independent surveys along northeastern coast of Australia; and 3. Identify management implications and research needs. LITERATURE SYNTHESIS LARVAL AND JUVENILE STAGES Megalops cyprinoides are believed to spawn offshore, but the locations of spawning grounds and subsequent dispersal of larvae remain uncertain. In surveys conducted in 1983–1984, covering a large area of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) lagoon and Coral Sea, larval M. cyprinoides were collected in November and December between Lizard Island and the outer barrier reef (see Leis and Reader, 1991 for further details on methods and sampling sites).
