This study evaluated the impact of shoreline variation on the growth and movement patterns of Fundulus heteroclitus, an estuarine fish species, in Pepper Creek, which is a tributary of the Delaware Coastal Bays. Over 720 fish were captured and tagged to track movement, and nearly 90 were re-captured to determine growth.
