Publisher's Note: Error in Figure 3 legend.

Posted by PLoS_ONE_Group on 07 May 2012 at 20:03 GMT

Fish assigned to natural origin (grey bars; N = 87) had δ34S values less than 6‰ (dashed line) and did not overlap with δ34S values from those identified as originating from a hatchery (open bars; N = 10).

The sample sizes were reversed in the Figure 3 legend. The correct sample sizes are: "Fish assigned to natural origin (grey bars; N=10).... those identified as originating from a hatchery (open bars; N=87)."
