Synopsis: The study of animal cognition has been largely confined to birds and mammals; a historical bias which has led to the belief that learning plays little or no part in the development of behaviour in fishes and reptiles. Research in recent decades has begun to redress this misconception and it is now recognised that fishes exhibit a rich array of sophisticated behaviour with impressive learning capabilities entirely comparable with those of mammals and other terrestrial animals.


In this fascinating book an international team of experts have been brought together to explore all major areas of fish learning, including:



  • foraging skills
  • Predator recognition
  • Social organisation and learning
  • Welfare and pain


Fish Cognition and Behavior is an important contribution to all fish biologists and ethologists and contains much information of commercial importance for fisheries managers and aquaculture personnel. Libraries in universities and research establishments will find it an important addition to their shelves.

Book Description: When people think of animals learning, they are unlikely to think of fishes as the main examples, yet the learning capabilities of fish are impressive, and entirely comparable with those of mammals and other terrestrial animals. Learning in Fishes is a timely new book that covers all major aspects of this subject, of great importance not only to animal behaviorists, but also to fish farm managers and fisheries scientists who aim to run commercially successful businesses..Learning in Fishes has been written by a worldwide team of experts, covering such important aspects as learning of foraging skills (important in understanding how fish feed in captivity), predator recognition by fish, learning in fish orientation, social organisation, cooperation, tool and substrate use, nest building, mate choice, social learning and welfare and pain.
