Abstract: The diets and microhabitat associations of three co-occurring species of tidepool fishes were investigated. The species studied were Clinocottus analis, Oligocottus snyderi and Cebidichthys violaceus. Significant differences were found between the tidepool microhabitat associations of the three species. Field and laboratory observations suggested that other requirements than food may be the significant limiting factors for littoral fishes during early spring.
