Given a choice of habitats in a laboratory experiment, whiting Merlangius merlangus preferentially spent most time over sand, then gravel and least time over a habitat with emergent structures. The introduction of a predator stimulus increased the preference for the sand habitat for large whiting, whereas small whiting had an increased preference for the habitat with emergent structures.
