  1. Movement pattern and home range of Roman <em>Chrysoblephus laticeps</em>

    Movement pattern and home range of Roman <em>Chrysoblephus laticeps</em>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The movement behaviour of adult Roman Chrysoblephus laticeps (Sparidae) was investigated using mark-and-recapture techniques in the Goukamma Marine Protected Area (GMPA) and the Tsitsikamma National Park (TNP) on the South African temperate south coast. The study was designed to improve...
  2. Movement patterns of an endemic South African sparid, the black musselcracker <em>Cymatoceps nasutus</em>, determined using mark-recapture methods

    Movement patterns of an endemic South African sparid, the black musselcracker <em>Cymatoceps nasutus</em>, determined using mark-recapture methods

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    This study made use of data from three long-term fish tagging projects along the South African coastline to investigate the movement behaviour of the endemic black musselcracker Cymatoceps nasutus (Sparidae). From 1984 to 2016, a total of 3 430 C...
  3. A comparative evaluation of three methods used to tag South African linefish

    A comparative evaluation of three methods used to tag South African linefish

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Tagging effects and loss rates of 60 Roman Chrysoblephus laticeps tagged with dart tags with barbs (D-tags), T-bar filaments (T-tags) and visible implant fluorescent elastomer (VIFE) tags were investigated. The fish were tagged and monitored in a controlled tank experiment...
  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. Reflection on the first five years of South Africa’s Acoustic Tracking Array Platform (ATAP): status, challenges and opportunities

    Reflection on the first five years of South Africa’s Acoustic Tracking Array Platform (ATAP): status, challenges and opportunities

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The Acoustic Tracking Array Platform (ATAP) is a marine science programme that monitors the movements and migrations of inshore marine animals along the South African coastline. Acoustically tagged animals are monitored by an expanded network of approximately 100 automated data-logging...
  6. Movement patterns of an endangered fishery species, <em>Lithognathus lithognathus</em> (Sparidae), and the role of no-take marine protected areas as a management tool

    Movement patterns of an endangered fishery species, <em>Lithognathus lithognathus</em> (Sparidae), and the role of no-take marine protected areas as a management tool

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Understanding movement behaviour is essential for effective management of fishery species. Dart tags were used to study coastal movement patterns of white steenbras Lithognathus lithognathus, an overexploited seabream (Sparidae) in South Africa. In total, 6 962 fish (190–1 080 mm...
