We used ultrasonic telemetry to examine movement patterns of 11 bat rays, Myliobatis californica, in Tomales Bay, California. Tomales Bay is long (20 km) and narrow (1.4 km), and is hydrographically separated into outer and inner bay regions. The outer bay (the outermost 8 km) is characterized by oceanic conditions while the shallow inner bay (the innermost 12 km) features wide seasonal temperature shifts. Five rays were tracked monthly from October 1990 to November 1991 and six rays (four of… CONTINUE READING
