As shown by trade catalogs, many of national manufacturers use products of marine origin to produce baits, groundbaits and attractants for freshwater fish. Marine polychaetes, molluscs, cephalopods, crustaceans and fish are among these products. These products are readily available in the world markets and have relatively low cost. Generally, baits, groundbaits and attractants with marine ingredients are usually positioned as instantaneous and attractive for freshwater fish.

Really, the results of field experiments described below show that statements of this kind are untrue. The first typical response both of freshwater and saltwater fish to odors, alien for their environments, is aversion to these odors.

Brief aversion of fish to novel foods, with their odors and taste, is called neophobia while an additional persistent wariness to novel foods is called dietary conservatism (DC) (Thomas et al., 2010). However, there are some part of adventurous consumers (AC) which eat novel foods overcoming their neophobia (specifically, in threespined stickleback, Gasterosteus aculeatus). Generally (Thomas et al., 2010), the presence of AC and DC patterns in natural fish populations allows these populations to develop adaptive foraging strategies in the changing environments.

We have tested an attractiveness for freshwater fish odors of feeding organisms of freshwater and saltwater origin. Compared feeding organisms are enumerated in the Tab.1, freshwater feeding organisms were familiar for freshwater fish. Marine organisms, except squids, were delivered in ice from Odesa region, the Black Sea, in Kyiv by car. Raw fresh frozen squids ... Read more »
