Visibility conditions and diel period affect small-scale spatio-temporal behaviour of pike Esox lucius in the absence of prey and conspecifics

Nilsson, Anders LU ; Baktoft, H.; Boel, M.; Meier, K.; Jacobsen, L.; Rokkjaer, E. M.; Clausen, T. and Skov, C. (2012) In Journal of Fish Biology 80(6). p.2384-2389
Abstract
Pike Esox lucius in the absence of prey and conspecifics were shown to have the highest habitat-change activity during dusk and to decrease preference for complex habitats in turbid water. As the behaviours indicate routine responses in the absence of behavioural interactions, E. lucius spatio-temporal distributions should be directly affected and thereby more easily assessed and avoided by prey, with potential consequences for encounter rates.
