Movements of Striped Mullet, Mugil Cephalus, Tagged in Everglades National Park, Florid
Abstract:The movements of striped mullet, Mugil cephalus, were studied from fish tagged in Everglades National Park, Florida. A total of 16,604 fish were tagged from March 1984 to September 1985. During the period December 1984 through February 1985 recaptured tagged fish moved significantly further and more northerly out of the Park's waters than they did the rest of the year. Tags were returned from 2.8% of the fish tagged along the west coast and from 0.3% of the fish tagged in Florida Bay and west coast mullet form a series of spatially overlapping stocks.
