The influence of oceanic and lagoonal plume waters on otolith chemistry

Patterson, Heather; Kingsford, Michael; McCulloch, Malcolm


To determine how ocean and lagoonal plume waters from within the same reef were reflected in the chemical composition of otoliths, we conducted an experiment over three consecutive summers where conditions of temperature and food were held constant. Presettlement Pomacentrus coelestis were held in replicate tanks of the two water masses for 9 days. The sagittae were then analyzed at high spatial resolution (5 μm x 50 μm x 4 μm) using laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry....[Show more]
