      The optomotor reaction of milkfish larvae and juveniles 

      G Kawamura & S Hara - Nippon Suisan Gakkaishi, 1980 - Japanese Society of Fisheries Science
      The development of the optomotor reaction (OMR) in milkfish (Chanos chanos), from the larval, through the metamorphic, to the juvenile stage was observed. The period from the appearance of the pelvic fins until the complete disappearance of the finfold was named "metamorphic stage". While the larvae showed strong rheotactic responses, their OMR was somewhat weak. It was clear that the OMR underwent a big change through the metamorphic stage, and became strong and almost perfect in the juveniles.
