Why is it beneficial that many predatory fish have larval and juvenile stages that feed at a low trophic level, while the adults feed at a tertiary or quaternarty trophic level?

My answer was that the larval and juvenile stages get more energy since they are at a lower level but my teacher said this is wrong.
