INTRODUCTION
The physiological state, or condition, of marine
organisms appears to vary greatly through space and
time due to variability in environmental conditions
such as temperature and food supply (McCormick &
Molony 1993, Kerrigan 1996, Hentschel & Emlet 2000),
and this variation may have significant demographic
consequences. Elevated nutritional condition, for ex-
ample, has positive implications for survival of seabirds
(Perez et al. 2006), growth in barnacles (Thiyagarajan
et al. 2005), and swimming endurance (Stobutzki
1997), offspring quality (McCormick 2003), and sur-
vival (Booth & Hixon 1999) in fishes. Moreover, the
relationships between nutritional condition and repro-
duction, growth, and survival vary depending on envi-
