Assessing connectivity in marine fish populations is essential to establish their spatio-temporal dynamics and the links between larval dispersal, juvenile abundance, survival and contribution to adult stocks as well as to identify important areas and habitats, particularly for species with segregated life history stages. The quantification of the relative contribution of juvenile source sites to adult populations is a core issue of this proposal. Recognizing natal or nursery origin of adults should enable the identification of the most important sites for juveniles, reveal stock structure and dynamics as well as indicate the extent to which populations are self-replenishing or not. Such information is essential to promote successful habitat conservation and fisheries management, prioritize habitats and sites that effectively replenish adult stocks and delineate appropriate spatial scales and subareas for management.
