As was also shown by Elliott and Dewailly (1995), there was no consistent latitudinal gradient of species richness. 3 fish species. A considerable difference was seen to exist for the two Mediterranean sites. In the Ebro delta only 24 species have been recorded, whereas 62 species were observed in the Messolonghi lagoon. However, this latter site might be more representative of Mediterranean estuarine systems, as only one habitat was represented in the Ebro estuary. The difference in intensity with which both sites were studied is, however, unknown.
