The present study investigated the effect of fry telencephalon damage on the later aggressive behavior and activity level of rainbow trout ( Salmo gairdneri ). In Experiment 1, the social behavior of the dominant members present in a group of telencephalon-damaged (TE) fish was examined and, in Experiment 2, the consequences of introducing a larger fish into stable communities of TE or control trout were assessed. In both experiments, fish in the TE group initiated fewer aggressive bouts than… CONTINUE READING
