  3. Marine connectivity and fish length frequencies of selected species in two adjacent temporarily open/closed estuaries in the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa

    Marine connectivity and fish length frequencies of selected species in two adjacent temporarily open/closed estuaries in the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The effects of timing, frequency and duration of mouth opening and marine overwash events on fish assemblages in two, adjacent temporarily open/closed estuaries were investigated. Sampling was conducted biannually over two years during summer and winter, using selective sampling gear...
  4. Residency and small-scale movement behaviour of three endemic sparid fishes in their shallow rocky subtidal nursery habitat, South Africa

    Residency and small-scale movement behaviour of three endemic sparid fishes in their shallow rocky subtidal nursery habitat, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The residency and small-scale movements of early juveniles (<175 mm fork length) of three sparid fish species were examined in the shallow subtidal zone along a 500 m stretch of rocky coastline near Schoenmakerskop (Eastern Cape Province, South Africa). A...
  5. Movement behaviour of largemouth bass <em>Micropterus salmoides</em> in a South African impoundment

    Movement behaviour of largemouth bass <em>Micropterus salmoides</em> in a South African impoundment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The objectives of this study were to describe movements and area use patterns of largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides in relation to abiotic factors (water temperature, river inflow and water level). The study was conducted in the Kubusi arm of Wriggleswade...
  6. Movement patterns of <em>Lichia amia</em> (Teleostei: Carangidae): results from a long-term cooperative tagging project in South Africa

    Movement patterns of <em>Lichia amia</em> (Teleostei: Carangidae): results from a long-term cooperative tagging project in South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    Understanding fish movement patterns and migrations is important for fisheries management as well as the identification and conservation of critical habitats. Data collected by the Oceanographic Research Institute's Cooperative Fish Tagging Project (ORI-CFTP) were used to describe the large-scale movement...
  7. Movement behaviour of alien largemouth bass <em>Micropterus salmoides</em> in the estuarine headwater region of the Kowie River, South Africa

    Movement behaviour of alien largemouth bass <em>Micropterus salmoides</em> in the estuarine headwater region of the Kowie River, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    The movement behaviour of largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides in the estuarine headwater region of the Kowie River, South Africa, was investigated using passive acoustic telemetry. Ten adult fish were tagged and released in four discrete pools below a weir that...
  8. Birds as major predators of fishes in the East Kleinemonde Estuary

    Birds as major predators of fishes in the East Kleinemonde Estuary

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Zoology
    This study provides a quantitative account of fish predation by piscivorous birds in the temporarily open/closed East Kleinemonde Estuary and represents the first global attempt to simultaneously relate such consumption to production by a fish community in the same estuary...
  9. Sociolinguistic and linguistic aspects of borrowing in Yilumbu

    Sociolinguistic and linguistic aspects of borrowing in Yilumbu

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of African Languages
    The paper explores sociolinguistic and linguistic aspects of borrowing in Yilumbu. Yilumbu has recorded the arrival of new words mostly from the following languages: Portuguese, French and English. From a phonological point of view, the Yilumbu system displays a set...
