Is otolith strontium a useful scalar of life cycles in estuarine ® shes ?

  title={Is otolith strontium a useful scalar of life cycles in estuarine ® shes ?},
  author={David H. Secor and Jay R. Rooker},
The ef®ciency with which estuarine habitats produce ®sh is poorly understood due to the complexity of life cycles. Spatial dynamics of estuarine ®shes comprise retentive and dispersive behaviors which occur on seasonal and ontogenetic scales. Salinity is an important scalar in the spatial dynamics of estuarine ®shes, that may affect production and dispersal. In this paper, we review investigations that used otolith strontium (Sr) to chart estuarine movements of ®shes. Based upon microprobe… CONTINUE READING
