P O T T S A E.Otolith formation begins early in the develop - ment of a fish, typically at the hatch-date of the larvae. The initial structure that is mineralized is called the primordium, which fuses to form the otolith core. This core is the foundation on which all new otolith growth occurs. Concen-tric layers of the protein and calcium carbonate
