Date Issued:
1983
Summary:
Small fishes of the families Cyprinodontidae and Poeciliidae are an important component of the Everglades food chain. To determine the age of these fish, the daily growth increments in the otoliths (calcium deposits found in the inner ear of teleost fishes) were counted. The hypothesis that the growth rate of the fish is affected by the season of the year was tested. Photomicrographs of the otolith are included.
