Influence of temperature on surface sediment disturbance by freshwater fish: a microcosm experiment

J. Canal, P. Laffaille, F. Gilbert, C. Lauzeral and L. Buisson

We experimentally assessed the influence of two contrasted temperatures on surface sediment disturbance (SSD) by three freshwater fish species

SSD was 2-3 times higher at 20°C than at 10°C for the three species

The stone loach had a higher SSD activity than the two cyprinid species

Our results suggest that SSD by fish could increase in future warmed conditions.
