Individual identification of organisms is a crucial part of assessing the processes that influence small-scale distribution patterns and the maintenance of social organizations. This study evaluates the use of passive integrated transponder (PIT) tags to quantify small-scale space use in a marine damselfish, Pomacentrus amboinensis (Pomacentridae). Implanting small PIT tags in the body cavity of fish down to 5.2 g with a hypodermic needle had no adverse effect on mortality or growth over a 47… CONTINUE READING
