Virtual Special Issue: Larval Fish

The larvae of many fish species occur temporarily in the plankton. Their feeding interactions with other planktonic organisms have a major influence on recruitment to many of the world’s important fisheries. This collection illustrates the variety of larval fish papers published recently in Journal of Plankton Research.
