Validation of age and growth in a long-lived temperate reef fish using otolith structure, oxytetracycline and bomb radiocarbon methods

Ewing, Graeme P.; Lyle, Jeremy M.; Murphy, Raymond J.; Kalish, John M; Ziegler, Philippe E.


Generating age estimates for long-lived fish requires particular attention to validation because they are usually difficult to age owing to narrow increment structure. A robust validation of the accuracy and precision of banded morwong, Cheilodactylus spectabilis, sampled from Tasmanian waters, was undertaken. Age at the first enumerated increment was established from analysis of juvenile cohorts, and the timing and periodicity of increment formation was established using a quantitative model...[Show more]
