The purpose of this capstone thesis is to examine the current state of our knowledge and understanding of larval fish transportation and retention within the context of the complex physical oceanographic regime of the westernCaribbean Sea. A research cruise funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was conducted in March 2006 to investigate the connection between physical oceanography, larval ecology, and transport. Initial analyses are presented.
