The influence of dominance and diet on individual odours in MHC identical juvenile Arctic charr siblings

Olsen, KH; Grahn, M and Lohm, Jakob LU (2003) In Journal of Fish Biology 63(4). p.855-862
Abstract
No difference in attraction was observed in sibling Artic charr Salvelinus alpinus between water scented by dominant or subordinate major histocompability complex (MHC) identical fish observed in a two-choice fluviarium. In a second experiment, MHC identical sibling donors were given different types of food pellets before the preference test. The test fish showed a significant attraction to the sibling given the same kind of food as the test fish itself during the first 6 h of the fluviarium tests. The results suggest that diet has an influence on the odours released and can, in addition to MHC related odours, be used for information relating to group member identity.
