We assessed small-scale movement patterns of fishes on three eastern Tasmanian reefs by divers visually resighting 1 040 individuals of 16 species marked with unique colour-coded tags. With the possible exception of the monacanthid Acanthaluteres vittiger, common species showed high fidelity to site, with individuals generally resighted <100 m from the initial tagging site and remaining near the tagging site throughout the 1 year duration of study. The wrasses Pictilabrus laticlavius and… CONTINUE READING
