Externally attached radio transmitters do not affect the parental care behaviour of rock bass
Turning, pectoral fin and caudal fin rates and time spent on the nest of male rock bass Ambloplites rupestris, engaged in parental care, were not affected after the attachment of external radio transmitters. Reproductive success was similar between treatment and control fish. Micro external radio transmitters can be used on small fishes for studying parental care duration and post-care movement without altering their behaviour.
