Note(s): A two-dimensional computer model is used to investigate the long-term net advective transport of larvae in tidal channels. Simulations are made over l-year time periods for Adderley Channel in the Exuma Cays of the Bahama Islands, and Aransas Pass on the Texas Gulf coast. Tidal conditions at these two locations are dominated by semi-diurnal and diurnal constituents, respectively. Larval transport is simulated by the product of the predicted tidal current and the larval concentration in each of five layers.
