Grouping behavior has various types of antipredator functions. Some of these functions require social transmission of information, such as the many-eyes effect, whereas others do not, such as the dilution and confusion effects. Functions of grouping behavior would enhance with social transmission among group members. We investigated and compared the onsets of schooling behavior and social transmission of information in chub mackerel Scomber japonicus. Onset of schooling behavior was observed in… Expand

Ontogeny of schooling behavior in the oval squid Sepioteuthis lessoniana
TLDR
The ontogeny of schooling behavior in the oval squid Sepioteuthis lessoniana reared from hatching to about two months of age is investigated, and observations clearly suggest that oval squid swim randomly until 20 days after hatching, then form a school 30–60 daysAfter hatching with an inter-individual distance of 2.0 ML.

School for learning: sharing and transmission of feeding information in jack mackerel Trachurus japonicus juveniles
TLDR
The present research suggests that sharing and transmission of information occur in schools of jack mackerel and schooling behavior would thus enable optimization of the foraging behavior in this species. Expand
Ontogenetic changes in behaviour transmission among individuals in the schooling of Pacific bluefin tuna Thunnus orientalis
TLDR
One cause of the reduction in the time required for behaviour transmission was the development of manoeuvrability, which resulted from further morphological development of the caudal fin and other organs related to swimming. Expand
Development of observational learning during school formation in jack mackerel Trachurus japonicus juveniles
TLDR
Evidence that observational learning develops along with the development of the social interaction in jack mackerel Trachurus japonicus juveniles is provided. Expand
Onset and development of cannibalistic and schooling behavior in the early life stages of Pacific bluefin tuna Thunnus orientalis
TLDR
It is proposed that a practical developmental stage for size grading to reduce the mortality by cannibalism should be between post-flexion and early juvenile (SL 6–23 mm), when the cannibalistic behavior onsets and swimming speed are relatively low. Expand
Ontogenetic changes in the ecological function of the association behavior between jack mackerel Trachurus japonicus and jellyfish
TLDR
The ecological function of association was proposed to develop first from school formation, next as a hiding place from predators, and then as a food source, and underwater observations of jack mackerel associating with giant jellyfish Nemopilema nomurai in two different areas in the Sea of Japan supported this hypothesis.

The ontogeny of swimming speed, schooling behaviour and jellyfish avoidance was studied in hatchery-reared Japanese anchovy Engraulis japonicus to compare its life-history strategy with two otherExpand
Preliminary Observations on the Development of Aggressive Behavior in Pacific Bluefin Tuna, Thunnus orientalis
TLDR
This study investigated the optimal conditions for behavioral observation of Pacific bluefin tuna Thunnus orientalis and observed behavioral development with special reference to aggressive behavior and Chase behavior was more frequent when juveniles were starved. Expand
To fight, or not to fight: determinants and consequences of social behaviour in young red drum ( Sciaenops ocellatus )
TLDR
Body size and condition were important determinants of social interactions between red drum larvae and suggest competitive disadvantage for the larvae from late cohorts when they recruit to the nursery habitats where larger larvae from early cohorts have already occupied. Expand
Behavioral Ontogeny of Marine Pelagic Fishes with the Implications for the Sustainable Management of Fisheries Resources
TLDR
Among common pelagic fishes, chub mackerel, Scomber japonicus, had the best growth performance and their cruise swimming speed was remarkably fast, while Japanese anchovy, Engraulis japanicus, were slow both at cruise and burst swimming speeds, and were extremely vulnerable to predation by jellyfish.

Effect of prey items on the development of schooling behavior in chub mackerel Scomber japonicus in the laboratory
TLDR
Lack of schooling behavior in the plankton- fed group may be attributed to the low level of highly unsaturated fatty acids, especially docosa- hexaenoic acid, in their diet, without which a deficiency in the development of the central nervous systems may have occurred. Expand

The timing of the development of schooling behaviour in Atlantic herring Clupea harengus and the quantitative and qualitative evolution of such behaviour in the larval and post-metamorphic stagesExpand
The effect of dietary docosahexaenoic acid on schooling behaviour and brain development in larval yellowtail
TLDR
Dietary DHA is probably critically important for the development of the brain, particularly TO, during the larval stages, and that development of TO may be the key factor of the ontogeny of schooling behaviour. Expand
Morphological aspects of the development of swimming and feeding functions in larval Scomber japonicus.
TLDR
The formation of the caudal fin, at the size of between 5.00 and 7.00mm SL, is earlier than other fins; this suggests that the caUDal fin plays a major role in forward propulsion in S. japonicus larvae. Expand
School formation and concurrent developmental changes in carangid fish with reference to dietary conditions
TLDR
Morphological changes of striped jack occurred in two steps; first at 9–12 mm (fin formation and inflection of allometric growth) and then second at 20–30 mm (scale and lateral line formation), and these changes corresponded with the development of schooling and recruitment to coastal waters, respectively. Expand
Development of predator defences in fishes
TLDR
A variety of development characteristics, morphological, behavioural, and experiential, contribute to the extreme vulnerability of young fishes to predation, and natural variations in environmental conditions represent additional challenges to predator defences during the rite of passage from birth to reproduction.

Social Mechanisms Enhance Escape Responses in Shoals of Rainbowfish, Melanotaenia duboulayi
TLDR
Fish in the larger shoals displayed a significant decrease in escape latencies over a series of five trawls, providing clear evidence of net avoidance learning, whereas fish in pairs showed no evidence of learning over successive runs. Expand
The sensory basis of fish schools: Relative roles of lateral line and vision
TLDR
The role of the lateral line in schooling is much greater than has been recognised previously and is suggested to be maintained by opposing forces of attraction and repulsion mediated by stimuli perceived by the visual and lateralis systems respectively. Expand
Group transmission of predator avoidance behaviour in a marine insect: The trafalgar effect
TLDR
Interactions between individuals in the flotillas mediate a rapid transmission of avoidance behaviour through theFlotilla which, in the field experiments, greatly exceeded the speed of approach of a predator model. Expand
The role of experience and chemical alarm signalling in predator recognition by fathead minnows, Pimephales promelas
TLDR
It is demonstrated that fathead minnows can acquire predator recognition through releaserinduced recognition learning, thus confirming a known mechanism through which alarm substance may benefit the receivers of an alarm signal. Expand
