Abstract

It is shown that the presence of pre-conditioned fish in a wild naive group reared under limiting ecological conditions (winter) facilitates the adaptation of the group to captivity by accelerating the learning of self-feeding and minimizing rearing stress and mortality. The reasons for this phenomenon, which has implications for aquaculture and fishing, are discussed and related to the learning capacity of this species when imitating pre-conditioned fish. © 1986.
