The Effect of Temperature On Larval Fishes
The influence of temperature on fish eggs and larvae is briefly described from an autecological viewpoint. Temperature may have lethal or sub-lethal effects as well as pacing metabolism, otherExpand

Startle Response in Herring: The Effect of Sound Stimulus Frequency, Size of Fish and Selective Interference With The Acoustico-Lateralis System
Herring ( Clupea harengus L.) show a marked ‘startle’ response when subjected to sound stimuli from a vibrating source (Blaxter, Gray & Denton, 1981c). The response, which occurs at a consistentExpand
