Movimientos de Peces

Since 2015, we have deployed 12 acoustic V16TP tags on ten dolphinfish, a wahoo, and a blackfin tuna around the FADs. In addition, 547 plastic dart tags have been deployed on dolphinfish (539), wahoo (6), a blackfin tuna (1), and a silky shark. Plus, a total of 12 satellite tags were deployed on dolphinfish (10), a wahoo, and a silky shark.  This included 2 high-rate Microwave Telemetry X-Tags and 10 Wildlife Computers mrPAT tags. Below are some figures based on data acquired and collected through June 2019.
Figure 1  Broad dolphinfish conventional and satellite tag movements from the U.S. Caribbean Sea from June, 2015, to June, 2019.  Numbers indicate days at liberty.  Blue numbers represent movements acquired with satellite tags while white numbers represent movements acquired from conventional tag recoveries.
Figure 2 Fine-scale dolphinfish conventional and satellite tag movements in the U.S. Caribbean Sea from June, 2015, to June, 2019. Numbers indicate days at liberty. Blue numbers represent movements acquired with satellite tags while white numbers represent movements acquired from conventional tag recoveries. Yellow ovals represent FAD deployment sites.
Figure 3 Preliminary movement map for an adult male (47”) dolphinfish fitted with a geolocating satellite X-Tag (# 175815) recovered at a fish aggregating device (FAD) south of Isla Saona, Dominican Republic, on May 20, 2019. The green oval represents the animal deployment site while the red oval represents the recovery site. Blue ovals represent the most probable track while the pink ovals represent the least probable track. This is the raw geolocation track that has not been reprocessed. Preliminary depth data (in meters) associated with the movement is provided.
