Abstract:
The behavioural mechanisms regulating partner specificity in the associations between burrowing alpheid shrimp and gobiid fish were investigated in the laboratory. Laboratory experiments included the optical and chemical attraction between several species of gobies and shrimp. Attempts were made to form artificial associations between species which are not found in the same burrows in the sea. Three different types of partner specificity were found among symbiotic species of gobies and shrimp in the northern Red Sea. Several behavioural mechanisms regulating specificity are suggested. These mechanisms include the attraction of the goby to the burrows of the shrimp, the mutual attraction between goby and shrimp and the formation of the tactile alarm system. Species of gobies and shrimp of the first type of specificity are mutually attracted, the goby optically and the shrimp chemically, and they form a tactile warning system. Species of gobies and shrimp of the second type of specificity are not attracted to each other, but they still form a tactile alarm system. Species of gobies and shrimp of the third type of specificity are neither attracted to each other nor do they form a tactile alarm system. These species did not form antennal contact, even when forced to live under the same shelter. © 1981.
