Movement patterns, site fidelity and growth were studied for giant trevally ( Caranx ignobilis) inhabiting a marine reserve surrounding Coconut Island in Kaneohe Bay, off the Island of Oahu, Hawaii. Short-term movements of fish were determined by acoustic telemetry and long-term movements and growth were investigated with conventional tag and release methods. Giant trevally appear to move to the Coconut Island marine reserve from the adjacent bay floor upon attaining a size of approximately 20… Expand

Residency and movement patterns of bonnethead sharks, Sphyrna tiburo, in a large Florida estuary
The use of a coastal estuary by bonnethead sharks, Sphyrna tiburo, was examined by acoustic monitoring, gillnet sampling and tag- recapture studies. Acoustic monitoring data were used to define theExpand
Seasonal and diel movements of giant trevally Caranx ignobilis at remote Hawaiian atolls : implications for the design of Marine protected areas
We need to understand the long-term movement patterns of coral reef top predators in order to design marine protected areas that will provide these animals with effective, long-term pro- tection. WeExpand
Movements and space use of giant trevally in coral reef habitats and the importance of environmental drivers
TLDR
The results of this study reveal that site attachment may be present and that environmental parameters play a role in observed movement patterns related to depth and presence and provide useful information for the development of management plans, particularly in relation to space-based protection.

Movement patterns of fish in a Martinique MPA: implications for marine reserve design
TLDR
Despite the fragmented habitat in the studied MPA, the results highlight that small MPAs (9.56 km2) could protect the 3 studied species and demonstrated that natural barriers were crossed by some individuals. Expand
Permanent aggregations of a pelagic predator at shallow seamounts
TLDR
Investigation of the long-term movement patterns of almaco jack, Seriola rivoliana, a large reef top predator, in one protected and one unprotected offshore shallow seamount in the Azores showed that adultAlmaco jacks were resident year-round, refuting the traditional view that these fish are essentially migratory and a seasonal occurrence in theAzores.

Marine reserve design and evaluation using automated acoustic telemetry: A case-study involving coral reef-associated sharks in the mesoamerican Caribbean
A non-overlapping acoustic receiver array was used to track the movements of two common shark species, nurse Ginglymostoma cirratum (n=25) and Caribbean reef Carcharhinus perezi (n=5), in and aroundExpand
Manual Acoustic Tracking Reveals the Spatial Ecology of Giant Trevally at a Remote South Pacific Atoll, with Implications for Their Management
Giant trevally (Caranx ignobilis) are important predators on the reefs of the tropical Indo-Pacific and research into their spatial ecology is needed to improve our understanding of their behaviorExpand
Post-release survival and movements patterns of roosterfish (Nematistius pectoralis) off the Central American coastline
Acoustic telemetry was used to assess immediate post-release survival and track the short-term movement patterns of roosterfish Nematistius pectoralis between 2008 and 2010. Seven roosterfish (85 toExpand
Movement patterns of two carangid species in inshore habitats characterised using network analysis
TLDR
Network analysis revealed that a combination of factors including ontogeny, foraging niche, and habitat influences may explain differences in space use between the species and highlight unique behaviours between co-occurring and closely related species. Expand
Ontogenetic shifts in home range size of a top predatory reef-associated fish (Caranx ignobilis): implications for conservation
TLDR
The habitat shift and expansion in home range size throughout ontogeny should be taken into account when designing effective spatial management plans for C. ignobilis. Expand

Movement Patterns, Habitat Utilization, Home Range Size and Site Fidelity of Whitesaddle Goatfish, Parupeneus Porphyreus, In a Marine Reserve
TLDR
It is suggested that even small areas containing suitable habitat can make effective reserves for this species and a relatively low abundance of reproductive size P. porphyreus at Coconut Island may indicate an ontogenetic shift to deeper habitat in this species. Expand
Movements, distribution and growth rates of the white goatfish Mulloides flavolineatus in a fisheries conservation zone
TLDR
The movements, growth rates and distribution of a population of white goatfish Mul/oides flavolineatus were investigated using a combination of tag-and-release and sonic tracking techniques, indicating that quite small harvest refugia can serve to effectively protect populations of mature adults, and that for most of the year, emigration of adults into adjacent fisheries was minimal.

Tracking Coastal Sharks with small boats: Hammerhead Shark Pups as a case study
TLDR
Acoustic telemetry techniques have been adapted for use with small boats to facilitate tracking of nearshore reef species and have modest operating costs that make tracking experiments a viable option for a wide range of researchers. Expand
Applications of marine refugia to coastal fisheries management
TLDR
Evidence from existing marine reserves indicates that increased abundance, individual size, reproductive output, and species diversity occurred in a variety of marine species in refuges of various sizes, shapes, and histories in communities ranging from coral reefs to temperate kelp forests. Expand
