Right tools for the task: intraspecific modality in the swimming behaviour of coral reef fishes

Pink, Jessica; Fulton, Christopher


Understanding the movement patterns of fishes in the wild requires an awareness of the intrinsic and extrinsic factors underlying their behaviour. Using field observations, we explored whether eight species of coral reef fish display modality in their swimming behaviour, which is a convergence in fin use patterns among and within species when they conduct daily activities (e.g. feeding, travelling, chasing). While a range of different fins were used during steady swimming by each species, most...[Show more]
