Non bioturbated laminated black shale indicate that oxygen levels beneath and just above the sediment-water interface were too low to support a burrowing infauna
. Episodic winnowing is documented by skeletal accumulations of thin-shelled bivalves (Bositra sp.).

Additional studies on the infauna
of seagrass and sandy bottoms should significantly increase molluscan diversity in the reef system of Maracajau, given that this group is characteristic of unconsolidated sea bottoms (Jones et al., 1990; Zuschin and Honegger, 1998).
Densities of zooplankton and infauna
, two important food resources for postlarvae and small juveniles, were higher at the oligohaline upper sites of MIM (e.g., annual mean density of organisms from a drop sampler at sites 1-4 averaged 549.7 [m.sup.-2] compared to 379.5 [m.sup.-2] in samples from more saline lower sites 5 and 6; Akin 2001).
