dc.description.abstractSamples of nocturnal, shallow-water (<1 m), motile fauna were collected using a 1 mm-mesh handnet during each season between autumn of 2001 and summer of 2003 from four sandy beaches in the Maltese Islands. Beaches on Lampedusa, Favignana and Pozzallo were also sampled during one season only for qualitative comparison with the Maltese beaches. Mysids and amphipods were the most abundant taxa, whilst omnivores/scavengers were the most abundant feeding types. Beaches on the Maltese Islands were faunistically distinct from each other, an observation that has important implications for conservation.en_GB
