Abstract

The homing behaviour of an individually recognizable Mycteroperca fusca has been observed in the field over a time span of 25 years. The animal leaves the bay of Garajau on the south coast of Madeira Island in spring and returns every year in autumn. This is the first long-term study showing that a fish returns to the same place annually, in a manner similar to migratory birds.
