Abstract

Gasterosteus aculeatus occurred up to 110 km offshore, with peak abundances from 3-75 km. Gasterosteus wheatlandi was most prevalent within 10 km offshore, but some individuals were collected up to 55 km offshore. The further offshore distribution of G. aculeatus should increase its potential for dispersal, perhaps explaining their capacity to found freshwater populations in recently deglaciated habitats. -from Authors
