As a part of a scientific examine that was printed in iScience on Dec. 16, a world group of researchers positioned robotic largemouth bass in the identical tanks as tadpoles and japanese mosquitofish. The examine confirmed that gambusia had been so fearful of the robotic predatory fish that they really misplaced weight, modified their habits, and reproduced much less. By successfully scaring the pants off (on?) these mosquitofish, the examine’s lead creator, Giovanni Polverino, and his group proved that robotic fish may very well be an efficient device within the international effort to fight invasive fish species.
