Abstract

Research with a variety of aquatic ectotherms suggests that variation in individual metabolic rate (i.e., metabolic phenotype) can be a factor that influences the behaviour and growth of individuals. Slow growth, growth disparity and growth depensation have been reported as major drawbacks to spiny ...

Abstract

Zebrafish, a highly-social species of freshwater fish, are widely studied across many fields of laboratory science including developmental biology, neuroscience, and genomics. Nevertheless, as standard housing for zebrafish typically consists of small and simplistic environments, less is known...

Abstract

Cognitive stimulation has been shown to be rewarding and capable of eliciting positive emotions in several species. In contrast to the abundant learning and exploration opportunities available in nature, captive environments can be under-stimulating - with the potential to induce anhedonia and...

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

The wide range of sizes of sexually mature prawn populations and particularly of the males is very typical of Macrobrachium rosenbergii (De Man) and a major obstacle to increased profitability of prawn culture. Prawn size variation reflects a complex population structure composed of three major...

Abstract

The effect of changing feeds on individual feed intake and feeding and dominance ranks in groups of African catfish Clarias gariepinus was investigated. Following feeding on a commercial feed groups (n=3) of six African catfish were either fed fish meal (FM42) or maize gluten (MG35) based feeds for ...

Abstract

The social behaviour of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) smolts collected from Rocky River, Newfoundland, Canada in the spring of 1999 and 2000 was evaluated during their migration period under controlled conditions in an experimental stream tank. Agonistic behaviour, dominance, distance to nearest...
