Abstract

The ontogenetic development of the overt motor and the electrical signalling behaviour in larvae of a West African elephantfish, Pollimyms adspersus, were studied. At an age of 35-40 days, hovering in mid-water was first observed. Before that time, the larvae moved only occasionally and rested in the nest that was guarded by the male parent. The very low electric organ discharge (EOD) rate of 2.4 ...
