Description
Descriptions
  1. Type: brief

    This dataset contains raw observations for olfactory preferences and lateralisation trials relating to the article "Effects of elevated CO on fish behaviour undiminished by transgenerational acclimation"

  2. Type: full

    Olfactory measurements were recorded after a 2 minute acclimation period to the flume. Documentation of a stream preference (via L or R) occurred by direct observation, measuring every 5 seconds for 2 minutes. Water streams were then switched, and the fish was given another acclimation period before the second half of testing. Each fish was only tested once. Lateralisation trials were recorded at each end of a t-maze chamber. Introduction to the ends of the chamber was randomised. After a 5 minute acclimation period, fish were gently guided to the runway and the direction of their turn at the perpendicular barrier was recorded by direct observation. Each fish was only tested once.
