5 Tracking environmental variation Food patch discrimination can be improved by remembering the spatial position of previously exploited patches, and predators must continually compare present information on patches and prey types with search images held in memory (Hart 1986, 1993; BLBK374-02 BLBK374-Brown 24 May 13, 2011 17:2 Copyeditor’s Name: Trim: 244mm X 172mm Char Count= Fish Cognition and Behavior Odling-Smee & Braithwaite 2003). There appear to be individual differences in food patch learning: some fishes seem to identify food patches by reference to local visual cues while others rely more on global cues (Huntingford & Wright 1989).
E. concentrating only on the most-reinforced stimulus) than probability matching (Mackintosh et al. 1971). While these findings show that fishes are capable of probability matching, the reinforcement context appears to be critical, since probability matching was replaced by maximising unless a ‘guidance’ procedure was used: in such a procedure, if on any trial the unreinforced stimulus was chosen initially, it was removed and the fish was allowed to earn a reward for response to the other stimulus (Behrend & Bitterman 1961).
6 Competition Learning and memory can influence the distributional patterns of competing individuals. The relative pay-off sum (RPS) learning rule predicts that good competitors will decide where to feed earlier and switch less between patches than poor competitors (Regelmann 1984). Within-shoal competition can cause subordinate fish to abandon patch sampling (Croy & Hughes 1991b). Hakayama & Iguchi (2001) recorded patterns in distribution, aggression, food intake and growth of the salmonid Onchorhynchus masou ishika that had free access to two patches and were able to use long-term memory to assess patch quality.
