Abstract The level of predatory threat encountered by fish may vary from population to population. In Trinidad, for example, guppies in the Lower Aripo River encounter a range of fish predators. Guppies from the Paria River, by contrast, encounter few fish predators but probably experience a high degree of predation from freshwater prawns, Macrobrachium spp. Predation risk from all types of aquatic predators is low for guppies from the Upper Aripo River. Inspection behaviour allows prey fish to… Expand
