Description

I am interested in causes and consequences of various migration strategies of cyprinid fish termed asp (Leuciscus aspius). Males of this species are protandric, meaning that they arrive earlier and leave the spawning ground later on the seasonal and also partly on daily basis. Since asp is long-lived iteroparous species, I am interested how reproductive strategies of males and females change with their experience.

Because cyprinid fish species have generally good sense of olfaction, asp ongoing project also investigates whether females communicate their readiness to spawn to males by pheromone release.
