Title

Temperate Utah chub form valid otolith annuli in the absence of fluctuating water temperature

Abstract

Utah chub Gila atraria, a temperate freshwater minnow, formed valid otolith annuli (annual growth rings), even when raised in a constant-temperature desert spring environment. This suggests that factors other than seasonal variation in water temperature control annual otolith marking.
