Abstract

While endotherms can rely on their insulation to reduce heat loss to adapt to cold environments, renewing of fur during molt impairs insulation while they have to perfuse the periphery to support epidermal tissues. The southern elephant seal Mirounga leonina undertakes an annual catastrophic molt...

Abstract

A major reason why conservation aquaculture is needed to improve the success of aquaculture-assisted fisheries is that traditional production aquaculture produces fish with mal-adaptive behaviors. These behaviors can be produced via domestication and culture techniques, and preventing these...

Abstract

Motile Aeromonas septicemia (MAS) is a common bacterial fish disease that may cause severe economic losses. This novel study was conducted to investigate behavioral changes of Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) in response to experimental induction of MAS. Aeromonas hydrophila, which is the...

Abstract

There is increasing evidence that the composition of a social group influences the fitness of its members. For example, group member identities can determine the exposure risk to contact-transmitted parasites and consequently impact the health of all group members. Here, we propose that group...

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

Juveniles Chinese sucker (Myxocryprinus asiaticus) obtains schooling swimming behavior. However, it is unclear when and why they form schooling behavior. We researched the mechanism of schooling formation related to hydraulics. We analyzed swimming behavior of Chinese sucker that ranged from 5 to...

Abstract

Many species in social groups make use of readily available, socially provided information for behaviours including predator avoidance, mate choice and foraging. Not only are actions imitated, but they may also be reapplied in variable future situations, suggesting an explicit knowledge of the...

Abstract

There are widespread records of grouping behaviour in both adult and juvenile sharks and rays (Class Chondrichthyes, Subclass Elasmobranchii). Yet despite burgeoning descriptions of these events, many of the proximate and ultimate causes of group living in these top predators remain elusive. Given...

Abstract

In social animal groups, an individual's spatial position is a major determinant of both predation risk and foraging rewards. Additionally, the occupation of positions in the front of moving groups is generally assumed to correlate with the initiation of group movements. However, whether some...

Abstract

Shoaling behaviour confers fitness benefits that depend on individual fish making specific choices of shoalmates. Some of these choices have been shown to be influenced by experience, raising questions as to whether all shoaling choices depend on experience. Here we show that juveniles of three...
