Does otolith chemistry indicate diadromous lifecycles for five Australian riverine fishes?
Diadromy is an important characteristic of the lifecycle of many Australian coastal fishes, but many of these species remain poorly studied. The migratory patterns of five riverine fish species from south-eastern Australia were examined using otolith chemistry. Analyses of individual otoliths from wild-caught fishes revealed distinctive lateral variation in otolith Sr : Ca values that provide good evidence for an amphidromous lifecycle for two species: Myxus petardi and Gobiomorphus australis....[Show more]
