Abstract:Experimental studies of the foraging ecology of drift‐feeding fishes have been limited in scope because of the lack of systems for dispensing suitable prey items to a number of patches with complex and controlled spatio‐temporal patterns of delivery rate. Here, tests are reported of a computer‐controlled feeding system that performs this requirement with considerable flexibility.
