Koi (Cyprinus rubrofuscus) Seek Out Tactile Interaction with Humans: General Patterns and Individual Differences
Contributor(s):: Fife-Cook, I., Franks, B.
The study of human-animal interactions has provided insights into the welfare of many species. To date, however, research has largely focused on human relationships with captive mammals, with relatively little exploration of interactions between humans and other vertebrates, despite non-mammals...

Behavioural fever, fish welfare and what farmers and fishers know
Contributor(s):: Huntingford, Felicity, Rey, Sonia, Quaggiotto, Maria-Martina
In this article we first describe briefly how, like other ectotherms, wild fish promote effective functioning (for example, digestion and reproductive maturation) by moving through the temperature gradients that they experience in their natural habitats (showing behavioural thermoregulation). We...
Effect of water temperature on aggressiveness and physiological parameters of juvenile matrinxã, Brycon amazonicus (Spix and Agassiz, 1829)
Contributor(s):: Ferreira, Juliana do N., de Barros, Igor B. A., Carvalho, Thaís B.
The matrinxã (Brycon amazonicus) is one of the species with the greatest rates of commercialization in the Amazon region, however, it has a high frequency of aggressiveness and cannibalism, and these traits are considered a major obstacle to the aquaculture sector. Environmental factors (e.g.,...
Stress coping styles: Is the basal level of stress physiological indicators linked to behaviour of sea bream?
Contributor(s):: Alfonso, Sebastien, Zupa, Walter, Manfrin, Amedeo, Fiocchi, Eleonora, Spedicato, Maria Teresa, Lembo, Giuseppe, Carbonara, Pierluigi
Stress coping style (SCS) is defined as a coherent set of individual physiological and behavioural differences in stress responses that are consistent across context and over time. SCS in fish has been studied, including because it has direct implications for aquaculture productivity and welfare....
Behavioural variation among divergent European and North American farmed and wild Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) populations
Contributor(s):: Islam, Shahinur S., Wringe, Brendan F., Bradbury, Ian R., Fleming, Ian A.
Animals often display consistent differences in behaviours across situations and contexts. However, little is known about how behavioural traits might vary in a context-dependent manner, with selection favouring correlated sets of behaviours in particular types of environments. Comparative...
Using acoustic telemetry to assess behavioral responses to acute hypoxia and ammonia exposure in farmed rainbow trout of different competitive ability
Contributor(s):: Gesto, Manuel, Zupa, Walter, Alfonso, Sébastien, Spedicato, Maria Teresa, Lembo, Giuseppe, Carbonara, Pierluigi
As other vertebrates, fish differ on an individual basis in their responses to disturbance (i.e. stress) and in their capacity for adaptation to environmental change. This individual stress-coping style (SCS) might have an impact on the individual welfare in aquaculture facilities. However, most...
Linking coping styles and enzymatic activity of energy metabolism in the wedge sole (Dicologlossa cuneata)
Contributor(s):: De la Roca, Elena, Sánchez, Beatríz, López, Juan Manuel, Herves, María Antonia, Canalejo, Antonio, Herrera, Marcelino
Knowledge of individual behavioural variations (coping styles) can be a very useful tool for aquaculture, since it could allow to adapt the culture conditions to the different behavioural traits and, thus, to reduce the stress in the fish getting in this way a better production. The objective of...
