The specific aims of our study were: (1) to determine whether cultured juvenile H. scabra released near mangrove–seagrass and coral reef flat habitats suffered different levels of predation, and (2) to identify the predators of juvenile H. scabra and determine whether cages provided short-term protection for released individuals.
