Summary Abundances of benthic invertebrates in the Hopkins River estuary were not affected by connection to the ocean, but by freshwater discharge and sediment properties. The bivalve Soletellina alba was identified as a suspension feeder. Invertebrate food sources were derived mainly from estuarine organic matter, but also contained marine and freshwater/terrestrial plants despite reduced river flow during drought conditions.
