Reconstructing transoceanic migration patterns of Pacific bluefin tuna using a chemical tracer toolbox

Check out this new paper on tuna connectivity in the Pacific! “Understanding movement patterns of migratory marine animals is critical for effective management, but often challenging, due to the cryptic habitat of pelagic migrators and the difficulty of assessing past movements. Chemical tracers can partially circumvent these challenges by reconstructing recent migration patterns.This novel toolbox of biogeochemical tracers can be applied to any species that crosses the North Pacific Ocean.”
