220 A METHOD FOR COLLECTING LIVE ALPHEID SHRIMP AND THEIR SYMBIOTIC GOBIID FISH PARTNERS BY ILAN KARPLUS Isotope Department, Weizmann Institute of Science, Rehovot, Israel and AVRAHAM VERCHESON Zoology Department, Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel The associations betwcen burrowing alpheid shrimps and gobiid fishes have a wide circumtropical distribution. These associations are mutually beneficial partner- ships, in which the fish uses the burrow excavated by the shrimp as shelter while providing the shrimp with a tactile alarm system against predators. The warning signals from the fish consist mainly of rapid tail flicks which are transmitted to the shrimp through its long antenna. One of the reasons that so few behavioural studies have been carried out on these interesting symbiotic associations is due to the difficulty of collecting intact animals. Occasionally shrimp and fish have been collected, usually in a damaged state, by the use of explosives (W. Klausewitz, personal communication ) . Other investigators (N. C. Polunin and J. E. Randall, personal communication) collected dead specimens by using poison or a Hawaiian sling spear (Randall, 1963). D. B. E.
