    Many fish species use coastal lagoons as habitats during at least some part of their life cycles. We discuss these characteristics with emphasis on latitudinal differences. Higher biomass of coastal fishes will occur when lagoon-estuarine habitat space is available and accessible. The concept of seasonal programming describes how juveniles use that lagoon habitat space. We also consider the lagoon-estuarine dependence of subtropical and tropical coastal fishes.
