Sample text

Light intensity varies with water depth, time of day, and transparency or turbidity of water. To adapt to the wide range of light intensities encountered at sea, functional changes between cone and rod cells are made through shifting of positions of visual cells according to the ambient light intensity. Rods are highly sensitive to low light intensities, while cones are used at high light intensities. This allows fish to function visually over a wide range of light intensities in the natural environment.

The increased capability of motion vision may also exist in other “warmbodied” tunas, which have a unique thermal regulation system (Sharp and Dizon 1978). Sharper vision, as well as faster swimming capacity, makes them superior predators. 5.
