Abstract

Total aggression and individual behavioural traits of equal-sized juveniles of farmed Atlantic salmon selected for 5 generations in the Norwegian Breeding Programme for Salmonids and a wild strain originating from the River Rauma, Norway, were compared in pure (10 fish) and mixed (5 + 5 fish)...

Abstract

Behavioural observations of juvenile Diplodus sargus in natural habitats were conducted to test whether agonistic interactions occur in natural circumstances and, if they do, in which context they happen. The level of aggression and the shoals composition were also compared between distinct natural ...

Abstract

The number and duration of agonistic encounters between signal crayfish Pacifastacus leniusculus individuals were monitored in two different social environments: a "stable" environment with large size variation and in an "unstable" environment with narrow size variation of conspecifics. The number...

Abstract

Living in groups with conspecifics can increase an animal's fitness in the wild. A social environment may also be imposed by commercial farming industries. One important measure of competition and group dynamics is the level of aggressive interaction. This can also influence the level of damage or...

Abstract

Several environmental contaminants have been found in paper mill effluent including substances with androgenic properties. The presence of androgenic substances in paper mill effluent was also indicated in the present study which demonstrated masculinized anal fins of female mosquitofish from the...

Abstract

Low temperature treatment was used to manipulate the growth rates of juvenile Atlantic salmon in the spring and the development of fin damage was followed in tagged individuals. Fin damage did not develop until mid-summer, possibly because of a qualitative change in the nature of aggressive...

Abstract

Two broods of a laboratory stock of the Oreochromis mossambicus (Mozambique tilapia) were studied in order to obtain data on the relationship between social status and male secondary sex traits (morphological and behavioural) at the onset of sexual maturation. Fish differing in social status...

Abstract

Archaeological data on the long history of interaction between indigenous people and salmon have rarely been applied to conservation management. When joined with ethnohistoric records, archaeology provides an alternative conceptual view of the potential for sustainable harvests and can suggest...

Abstract

We assessed the influence of two commercial fish farms on the local aggregation of coastal wild fishes through a 'post-impact' sampling design at Gran Canaria Island (Canary Islands). At each farm, we established two controls and one impact location and estimated fish abundance bimonthly by means...
