Analysis

  • Confirms marine migration between March and August.
  • Suggests prolonged residence and potential for inter-annual fidelity in marine habitat use.
  • Shows preference for beach habitats with SAV presence, within 400 m of shore at less than 4 m depth.
  • Fish do not discontinue use of more developed shorelines (e.g. Utsalady Bay)
