Amino acids are known to elicit feeding behaviour in adult fish. Larval fish also respond to amino acids. The behaviour of larval herring in gradients of amino acids was analyzed to see how responses to amino acids might aid in food finding or allow larvae to remain in patches of food. No reflex-like behaviour patterns were found. Olfactory cues seem to prepare larvae to receive secondary, probably visual.
