We examined individual variation and the role of sex on the movements of the reef manta ray Mobula alfredi. Specifically, we analysed several movement metrics using 6 years of nightly observations (January 1, 2009–December 31, 2014) of 118 individually identifiable manta rays at two discrete but spatially proximate sites, locally known as Manta Hea...

This technique has been used to assess home range (Deakos et al., 2011;Kashiwagi et al., 2011), longevity (Clark, 2010;Couturier et al., 2014;Kashiwagi, 2014;Rubin, 2002), migration patterns (Armstrong et al., 2019;Germanov & Marshall, 2014), site affinity (Couturier et al., 2011;Germanov et al., 2019;Marshall et al., 2011), reproductive ecology (Deakos et al., 2011;Marshall & Bennett, 2010a;Stevens, 2016) and estimating abundance (Beale et al., 2019;Couturier et al., 2014;Venables, 2020). Regional reef manta ray [Mobula alfredi (Kreft, 1868)] photo-ID databases vary substantially in the total number of individuals identified over time, ranging from populations in the low hundreds (Axworthy et al., 2019;Carpentier et al., 2019;Deakos et al., 2011;Kashiwagi, 2014;Peel, 2019) to those in the thousands (Armstrong et al., 2019;Stevens, 2016;Venables, 2020). ...
