Movements of Diadromous Fish in Large Unregulated Tropical Rivers Inferred from Geochemical Tracers

Walther, Benjamin D.; Dempster, Tim; Letnic, Mike; McCulloch, Malcolm T.


Patterns of migration and habitat use in diadromous fishes can be highly variable among individuals. Most investigations into diadromous movement patterns have been restricted to populations in regulated rivers, and little information exists for those in unregulated catchments. We quantified movements of migratory barramundi Lates calcarifer (Bloch) in two large unregulated rivers in northern Australia using both elemental (Sr/Ba) and isotope ((87)Sr/(86)Sr) ratios in aragonitic ear stones, or...[Show more]
