Description - Otoliths of Common Australian Temperate Fish by Dianne Furlani

Accurate identification of otoliths is essential to determine the fish prey of marine and terrestrial predators. Fish otoliths are species-specific when combining size, shape and surface features, and can remain undigested for long periods. As a result they can indicate which fish make up the diet of various predators, including fish, cephalopod, seabird and sea mammal species. Such studies are crucial for an understanding of the functioning of marine ecosystems.
