This question will be developed and analysed throughout the Research Seminar and Graduate Thesis of Miss Juanita de Los Ríos, student of Marine Biology at Universidad de Valparaíso (Chile). She today started the photography captures of larval clingfish Gobiesox marmoratus collected at different lunar phases between September 2015 and February 2016. After that body measurements (standard length and mouth size), she will start the gut content analysis, in order to test the hypothesis initially postulated by Dr. Santiago Hernández-León (2008), in which the full moon may favor the feeding success of marine fish larvae.
