  1. Transit station or destination? Attendance patterns, movements and abundance estimate of humpback whales off west South Africa from photographic and genotypic matching

    Transit station or destination? Attendance patterns, movements and abundance estimate of humpback whales off west South Africa from photographic and genotypic matching

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Humpback whales Megaptera novaeangliae found off west South Africa (WSA) are known to display an atypical migration that may include temporary residency and feeding during spring and summer. At a regional scale there is uncertainty about how these whales relate...
  2. Inter-island movements of common bottlenose dolphins <em>Tursiops truncatus</em> among the Canary Islands: online catalogues and implications for conservation and management

    Inter-island movements of common bottlenose dolphins <em>Tursiops truncatus</em> among the Canary Islands: online catalogues and implications for conservation and management

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    A total of 313 individual common bottlenose dolphins Tursiops truncatus was photo-identified in four Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) in the western Canary Islands, Spain (El Hierro, La Palma, La Gomera and Tenerife), over a 10-year period (2001–2011). Of these,...
  3. 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...
  4. Intra-archipelago moult dispersion of southern elephant seals at the Prince Edward Islands, southern Indian Ocean

    Intra-archipelago moult dispersion of southern elephant seals at the Prince Edward Islands, southern Indian Ocean

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    During three summer surveys at Prince Edward Island (PEI), southern Indian Ocean (2001, 2004 and 2008), 416 southern elephant seals Mirounga leonina were inspected for identification tags. In all, 42 seals that had been tagged as weaned pups at their...
  5. Distribution, behaviour and photo-identification of Atlantic humpback dolphins <em>Sousa teuszii</em> off Flamingos, Angola

    Distribution, behaviour and photo-identification of Atlantic humpback dolphins <em>Sousa teuszii</em> off Flamingos, Angola

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Atlantic humpback dolphins Sousa teuszii are a priority for research due to their restricted geographic range, narrow ecological niche and the paucity of existing information. The distribution and behaviour of S. teuszii off Flamingos, southern Angola, was investigated during summer...
  6. How do African Black Oystercatchers <em>Haematopus moquini</em> recruit into high-density populations?

    How do African Black Oystercatchers <em>Haematopus moquini</em> recruit into high-density populations?

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Ostrich: Journal of African Ornithology
    Theoretical and empirical studies of oystercatchers both suggest that levels of adult site fidelity, natal philopatry and age-at-first-breeding are interrelated consequences of life-history decisions made by potential breeders. All are fundamental to explaining population dynamics and have important conservation implications...
  7. Photo-identification and habitat use of Atlantic humpback dolphins <em>Sousa teuszii</em> around the Río Nuñez Estuary in Guinea, West Africa

    Photo-identification and habitat use of Atlantic humpback dolphins <em>Sousa teuszii</em> around the Río Nuñez Estuary in Guinea, West Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Ecological data for the Atlantic humpback dolphin Sousa teuszii are scant. Six on-effort Sousa teuszii sightings were recorded during 817.6 km of boat-based effort in the Río Nuñez region of Guinea during October and November 2013. Two incidental sightings were also...
  8. Using an unbaited stationary video system to investigate the behaviour and interactions of bull sharks <em>Carcharhinus leucas</em> under an aquaculture farm

    Using an unbaited stationary video system to investigate the behaviour and interactions of bull sharks <em>Carcharhinus leucas</em> under an aquaculture farm

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Bull sharks Carcharhinus leucas are common along the coast of Reunion Island (South-West Indian Ocean) and were suspected to aggregate in the vicinity of an aquaculture farm in Saint-Paul Bay on the west coast. In order to understand the behaviour...
  9. Philopatry and dispersal of juvenile leervis <em>Lichia amia</em> (Teleostei: Carangidae) tagged in a warm-temperate South African estuary

    Philopatry and dispersal of juvenile leervis <em>Lichia amia</em> (Teleostei: Carangidae) tagged in a warm-temperate South African estuary

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Understanding and characterising movement and area-use patterns of fishes within estuaries, as well as understanding the degree of connectivity between estuaries and the marine environment, can provide important insights into a species’ ecology, which is fundamental for effective management and...
  10. Quantifying the largest aggregation of giant trevally <em>Caranx ignobilis</em> (Carangidae) on record: implications for management

    Quantifying the largest aggregation of giant trevally <em>Caranx ignobilis</em> (Carangidae) on record: implications for management

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The giant trevally Caranx ignobilis (Forsskål) is an important apex predatory fish typically associated with coral reef communities. It is prized in recreational and commercial fisheries, yet little is known about its aggregation dynamics and susceptibility to fishing pressure. This...
