Table 2 Diversity indices as calculated by MOTHUR software (ver. 1.33.3). Operational taxonomic units (OTUs) were defined at 97% sequence similarity. Significance among total values for each fish species was determined by a one-way anova followed by Tukey’s post hoc test. Within a column, different superscript letters means significant difference (anova: p < 0.01)
