The fish also learned to ‘drive’ the car!

Scientists have made goldfish able to ‘drive’ vehicles to reach their food.

This interesting experiment was performed at Ben-Gurion University in Israel, in which six goldfish species were rotated in an aquarium filled with clear water and transparent walls.

This particular aquarium was housed on a wheeled trolley with motors mounted to move it.
Adjacent to the aquarium was a camera mounted on a long bar that monitored the movement of goldfish in the water and moved the wheels accordingly (via motors).

For example, if the fish is right in the middle of the aquarium, the trolley will be stationary, but as soon as the fish starts swimming to its right, the trolley will start moving in the same direction.

At the beginning of the experiment, the aquarium was placed in the middle of a room with a trolley with various paintings on the walls.

Golden fish were then released into the aquarium in turn, which were trained to ‘drive’ the aquarium closer to the picture on the wall.

Some of these special pictures were such that when they came very close, the fodder for goldfish food was dropped in the aquarium, while some of the pictures did not.

With just a few days of training, the fish began to recognize the images that they used to get for food while approaching, while they also learned to recognize ‘fake’ images.

In other words, these fish were able to ‘drive’ their own aquarium to reach the desired wall.

Not only that, but they also learned to reach their destination by turning it left and right when obstacles came their way.

These seemingly insignificant abilities are very unusual for a small fish.

Until now, it was thought that goldfish and other such fish had poor memory and could not learn more complex tasks.

Both experiments have been proven wrong by this experiment and it has been found that with just a few days of proper training, goldfish can learn complex tasks that require a great deal of memory and a certain amount of intelligence.

Shachar Gavon, a PhD student at Ben Gurion University, says that like humans, goldfish have the potential to learn something completely different from their birth and upbringing.

“Obviously, the acquisition of new acquisitions is not limited to a few animals, but it is probably normal for seemingly less intelligent and smaller animals,” he said.

Note: This research is published online in the latest issue of the journal Behavioral Brain Search.
