Maternally transmitted isotopes and their effects on larval fish: a validation of dual isotopic marks within a meta-analysis context

Starrs, Danswell; Davis, Jacqueline; Schlaefer, Jodie; Ebner, Brendan; Eggins, Stephen; Fulton, Christopher


Transgenerational marking enables mass-marking of larval fishes via transmission of enriched stable isotopes from mother to offspring, but potential impacts on the resultant progeny are poorly understood. We injected enriched stable isotopes (137Ba and 87Sr) into female purple-spotted gudgeon, Mogurnda adspersa, to produce multiple batch markers and examined larval morphology at hatch as well as survival and growth to 31 days posthatch in marked and unmarked offspring. Transgenerational marking...[Show more]
