Abstract:The site fidelity of ballan wrasse Labrus bergylta was studied using photo‐identification and external tagging. Five male individuals were observed to defend the same small territory composed of a few rocks during several reproductive seasons spanning 2 to 15 years. These results provide one of the strongest indications of long‐term very fine‐scale site fidelity in marine fishes.
