Abstract:

This translation describes tests performed on the chemical sense organs, olfaction and taste, of certain fishes, specifically minnows, crucian carp, and carp. The high development and the great functional significance of these chemical sense organs in the life of fishes have made it possible to assume that a definite role should be ascribed to these types of reception in schooling behavior. The article includes the experiments and their results which help to describe the group or school effect life which is readily observable in many fishes.
