The use of tetracycline staining techniques to determine statolith growth ring periodicity in the tropical loliginid squids loliolus noctiluca and loligo chinensis

ISSN/ISBN: 0042-3211

The tropical near-shore loliginid squids Loliolus noctiluca and Loligo chinensis have statolith growth rings similar to those described for other squid species. These rings also appear to be similar in appearance to increments found in fish otoliths. Daily periodicity of these rings was validated by staining the statoliths with tetracycline and comparing the number of rings produced with the elapsed days. These results were considered in relation to previous validation work on statolith rings that has been carried out with other squid species. Microstructural examination of statoliths promises to be a useful tool to obtain future growth information for these tropical loliginid squids.
