Abstract
Experiments in mammals have shown that environmental enrichment in cages can help decrease fear and aggression responses and help to lower stress levels. However, less is known about the effect of environmental enrichment in fish. In most land-based aquaculture fish are raised in raceways or tanks that are rather barren and some efforts have been made to enrich the culture environment. However, adding objects into the tanks may cause problems due to abrasions or the possible accumulation of waste or bacteria which are hard to clean regularly. For that reason, water inlets seem to be a good alternative since they are easy to apply and turn on and off automatically.
