A study on the temporal patterns ofpueruli recruitment of the spiny lobster Panulirus argus at two sites on the Mexican Caribbean coast has been conducted since 1987. Artificial collectors were used to monitor trends and magnitude of pueruli recruitment. Magnitude in monthly and annual pueruli recruitment indices has been notably different at both sites. Moreover, a seasonal pattern in pueruli recruitment was apparent only at one of the sites. Interannual variability in pueruli recruitment indices has been high at both sites. It is speculated whether these differences are the result oflocal hydrographic features that may influence larval transport and influx into the coastal zone. The importance of these abiotic factors on the variability of the postlarval recruitment indices is discussed, as well as potential limiting factors for subsequent lobster abundance in different sectors of the coast.
