Paper Abstract

Slides and motion picture excerpts were used to demonstrate some applications of photography in the study of fish behavior. The problems of avoidance of a purse seine net by fishes, the associations of fish with floating objects, shark behavior, and fish schooling behavior served to illustrate the techniques. Special methods were discussed such as time-lapse photography to record changes in patterns of behavior and infrared photography to observe schools under low illumination.
