Consistent behavioural traits and behavioural syndromes in pairs of the false clown anemonefish Amphiprion ocellaris

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Using the social clown anemonefish Amphiprion ocellaris, whether individuals exhibited consistency in activity levels, boldness and sociability in a paired context, and whether these three behavioural traits were positively correlated within a single behavioural syndrome, was investigated. The results highlight that consistent individual differences in behaviour are expressed in a social fish and suggest that consistent behavioural traits and behavioural syndromes could influence the structure and functioning of their societies. © 2013 The Fisheries Society of the British Isles.
