Both Acartia spp. and C. hamatus are known to be typical summer species, reproducing and attaining their annual peak in mid-summer. Nevertheless, their reproduction will, perhaps, be slightly affected by Aurelia predation. The larval stages of bivalves did not show a trend with increasing population densities of A. aurita, although they make up a high portion of A. aurita gut contents (up to 80% of total numbers). It seems that the high production of newly liberated larvae by the benthic adults compensates the losses due to consumption by medusae (Schneider & Behrends, 1994), although it is also possible that the larvae survive gut passage, as observed by Purcell et al.
