Resumen: "Retention and dispersion of virtual fish larvae were compared in four regions of the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System: Gulf of Honduras, Turneffe Atoll, southern coast of Mexico (Xcalak/Chinchorro channel) and northern Chinchorro Bank. The results indicated that in the Gulf of Honduras, 20 % of the surface particles can be retained for up to 40 days, this retention was longer at 50 m depth. The area of Turneffe Atoll showed southward dispersion during November and December"
