    Microsatellite data from the Viana (Portugal) Nerophis lumbriciformis population. On the first page, the unique adult genotypes are presented (used for the construction of Table 1, using GENALEX and CERVUS). The second page contains the genotypes of embryos and potential parents, including recaptures (used in PARFEX for the parentage analysis)

    Additional file 1: Figure S1. Sunfish displacement per size. A) Daily displacement in relation to time, coloured according to sunfish size; B) Boxplots of the size-related displacements; C) Average daily distance form tagging location, per Julian day also coloured by sunfish size. Red dots denote displacement of sunfish smaller than the average TL (0.92 m) and black for larger individuals

    <p>Left: frequency distributions showing amount of time spent at different depths; black bar denotes essentially night (00:00 and 18:00) and white bar day (06:00 and 12:00). Centre: minimum-maximum depth within each integration interval; white circles represent actual observations; colour represents kernel density estimates for minimum-maximum depth. Right: temperature-at-depth profiles (depth scale is similar to central panel); horizontal grey line represents thermocline depth. Note continued permanence at depth in A.</p

    <p>(A) The fast-acquisition (Fastloc) GPS tag (depth rated to 1000 m) used to track sunfish in the north-east Atlantic (attachment method shown in B). (C) Three Tracks (S1–3) overlaid on a high resolution resolution (2 km) SST map averaged for the period between 6 November 2008 and 6 February 2009 (corresponding to track duration of S3).</p

    <p>(A) Large-scale movement of sunfish S3 in relation to 1/4° altimetry map, depicting averaged mesoscale eddies and geostrophic current direction and speed vectors in the Gulf of Cadiz for the period between 6 November 2008 and 6 February 2009. (B) Track section for the period between 24 December 2008 and 8 January 2009 overlaid on the 1/32° global Naval Research Laboratory Layered Ocean Model (NLOM) SSH data for the same period; white dots in (A) denote the track section shown in (B), and those in (B) are shown in (C) to illustrate the similar patterns in movement at three distinct scales. (D) Variance in first passage times show peaks (arrowed) corresponding to the scales shown in (A–C). (E) Track section illustrating intermittent movement rate over successive days (top panel; white and black circles denote different consecutive days) and variation in over the ground speeds. Minimum time interval between consecutive locations, 4 min.</p
