  1. Fish total length (mm), furthest distance (FD) in metres from release point for the first 4 days and over 60 days. Displacement (D) in metres is distance from release point at study end. Activity space (km2) based on 95 % kernel utilisation distribution (KUD). Minimum activity index (MAI m h−1) calculated by dividing the distance between two points by the time elapsed between observations. Residency index (RI) is given as a proportion of tracking days detected
