The Fisheries Behavioral Ecology Program conducts experimental research related to the processes that influence capture of fishes with trawls, traps, and long-line gear. These processes include fish vision, olfaction, orientation, locomotory abilities, activity patterns and feeding motivation, as well as the environmental parameters that mediate those elements of behavior. Specialized apparatus have been designed to examine fish passage through net mesh and bycatch reduction devices. Infrared laboratory facilities allow video observation of fishes in low light.
Recent experiments include:
