Seasonal movement of redside dace (Clinostomus elongatus) in relation to abiotic and biotic factors / D. Andrew R. Drake and Mark S. Poesch.: Fs70-5/2019-077E-PDF

"Here, we analyze seasonal movement of Redside Dace within two tributaries of the Rouge River, a medium-sized drainage in the central Lake Ontario basin in Ontario, Canada. Our objectives are threefold: First, we describe the movement of Redside Dace, focusing on the stationary and mobile components of fish activity across eight sampling intervals and a 14 month tag-recapture period. Second, we derive a directional weighted mean statistic to determine if population-level movement is biased in an upstream or downstream direction, and whether this bias varies seasonally and in relation to hydrologic conditions. Lastly, we explore factors at the scale of the stream reach to determine how habitat features and biotic variables (e.g., co-occurring stream fishes) influence the scale and frequency of movement"--Introduction, page 1.
