Density, but not body size, of drifting young-of-the-year cyprinid fishes was negatively correlated with light intensity. As an ability to resist the water current develops gradually with size, the results support the view that drift in cyprinid fishes is a behavioural decision, triggered by light level, rather than passive displacement of visually disoriented fishes.
