  • Description: Hatchery-reared juvenile turbot were tagged with Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tags and released at three different depths in a sandy bay in Denmark. About 2–7% of the released fish were registered daily to monitor their distribution using a tag antenna mounted on a modified beam trawl, thus avoiding actually sampling the fish. The change in distribution of the three groups was adequately represented by a two-dimensional movement model. Movement along the shore was described by a Brownian motion with group specific drift. Movement perpendicular to the shore line was described by a Cox–Ingersoll–Ross process with a group specific attraction point. All three groups exhibited similar depth preferences of 1.7 m. Immediately after the release, fish were concentrated around the release points but after one day, fish had moved to the preferred depth and subsequently maintained their position at this depth. Farmed turbot exhibited strong site fidelity and an innate behaviour for selecting a preferred depth.
