• Fish Ability to Smell More Important Than We Realize?



“While fish have big eyes to help them find prey and keep track of each other up close, they rely on their chemosensory system to track other fish of the same species in the vastness of the ocean…

"A fish can smell itself, and recognises others with the same smell," says Ward, who studies the social behaviour of fish.

“Fish use smell to sniff out a partner with a strong immune system.”
