In seahorses this has proven difficult in the past because of the seahorses’ rigid body structure, reduced size of fins and susceptibility to infection. We investigated the suitability of visible implant fluorescent elastomer (VIFE) for tagging the big-bellied seahorse, Hippocampus abdominalis , Leeson 1827. Thirty-six seahorses were tagged and their mortality, growth and tag retention assessed… CONTINUE READING
