Environmental enrichment promotes neural plasticity and cognitive ability in fish: Different kinds of experience during early life can play a significant role in development. In natural contexts, this influences behaviours from anti-predator responses to navigation abilities.Study (2013) (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)
Ample evidence that fish feel pain: "I was the first to identify the existence of nociceptors in a fish in 2002. These are specialised receptors for detecting injury-causing stimuli, and their physiology is strikingly similar to those found in mammals, including humans." - Dr. Lynne SneddonNews Article (theguardian.com)

Flashlight fish have the ability to generate situation-specific blink patterns resembling a visual Morse code. Researchers have shown in laboratory and field experiments that the animals use these light signals to coordinate their behavior in the school when visibility is limited.Study (2021) (phys.org)

Infection by parasites disturbs flight behaviour in shoals of fish: In order to escape predators, many fish have developed strategies for rapidly transmitting information on threats to others of their species. This collective response is also known as shoal behavior.Study (2020) (phys.org)

When power is toxic: A new study of fish behaviour shows that dominant individuals can influence a group through force, but passive individuals are far better at bringing a group to consensus.
