Description How do fish move around in the wild? Who do they meet and how often? For our long-term project on social foraging in guppies, we aim to video-record and so track guppies in pools in the wild using GoPro's. However, there are some technical challenges to be conquered, which need pilot testing and automatic image recognition to be solved. Are you interested in animal social behaviour, fish behaviour and/or applying novel digital technologies, contact us! The project will likely include fieldwork in Trinidad in April 2023. Also possible as a Research Practice.

Used skills video analysis, programming, automatic image recognition, fieldwork
