A new published paper!

Pablo Arechavala-Lopez, a member of FishEthoGroup, is a coauthor of the paper ‘Accelerometry of Seabream in a Sea-Cage: Is Acceleration a Good Proxy for Activity?’, which was recently published in the journal Frontiers in Marine Science. This paper investigated the activity patterns of the fish gilthead seabream (Sparus aurata) in a sea-cage by transmitter tags. The findings show daily rhythms of this species in accelerations and the relationship of these with water temperature, food anticipatory activity, fish size and tissue weights.
