Fin spotting: efficacy of manual and video-based visual assessments of reef fish swimming behaviour

Pink, Jessica R.; Fulton, Christopher J.


Here we report on the efficacy of manual and video-based underwater visual census (UVC) for recording the swimming behaviour of fishes within complex coral reef habitats. Focusing upon four common fish species from the Great Barrier Reef (Acanthurus nigrofuscus, Chaetodon lunulatus, Siganus doliatus and Sufflamen chrysopterus), we compared manual recordings by divers against post-field analysis of underwater video of the same species in the ability to detect the different fin types used by...[Show more]
