The study tests whether diurnal microhabitat use by Hatcheria macraei depends upon specific environmental parameters and/or the abundance of other fish. We carried out a 1-year field study in a low-order river of northern Patagonia, Pichileufu River, and used experimental trials to determine substrate preferences. Fishes were captured during daylight and(More)
Effects of subcutaneous visible implanted alphanumeric (VIA) microtags, pelvic fin excision, and individual photo-identification (Pid) based on natural spot patterns were experimentally evaluated in the small stream benthic Patagonian catfish Hatcheria macraei. VIA tag retention was 90 % during the first 45 days, decreasing to 80 % at day 200, and 66 % at(More)
