Diel vertical migration of European hake Merluccius merluccius and associated temperature histories: insights from a pilot data‐storage tagging (DST) experiment
A pioneering experiment of archival tagging of European hake Merluccius merluccius provided evidence of a diel vertical migration pattern which was analysed using an automatic method, developed and validated through time‐frequency analyses. Frequent vertical movements across the thermocline were observed and fish experienced rapid temperature changes >7° C. These tagging–recapture data also suggested a homing behaviour to feeding grounds.
