The ontogeny of predatory mechanisms in the fifteen‐spined stickleback, Spinachia spinachia (L.)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Predatory behaviour is similar in juvenile and adult fifteen‐spined sticklebacks. Despite achieving velocities up to 20.2 times faster than the prey, juvenile fish do not employ low‐energy attacks. This contrasts with adults which adjust predatory behaviour according to prey‐type, but may be a result of the unpredictable prey escape response.
