Summary

This data was generated from a study in which five experiments were conducted that tested whether and how dissolved chemicals might assist food recognition in two filter-feeding fishes, the silver (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) and the bighead carp (H. nobilis). The buccal-pharngeal pumping (BPP), a behavior in which fish pump water into their buccal cavities, was observed in both silver and bighead carps after exposure to a a variety of food filtrates and mixtures. In addition, occlusion experiments to determine if the olfactory sense has a very important, but not exclusive, role in bigheaded carp feeding behaviors were conducted.

Purpose

To investigated how chemical food cues might be discerned by two species of filter-feeding fishes from the genus Hypophthalmichthys (also known as bigheaded or sometimes Asian carps), one of the world’s most important genera of fish as it has both been widely cultured for consumption by humans but has also escaped to become one of our most invasive fishes.
