dc.description.abstractWe compared preferences shown by zebrafish Danio rerio and three‐spined stickleback Gasterosteus aculeatus for shelter provided by above‐tank shade and artificial plants. Zebrafish showed no preference for either shelter, whereas sticklebacks showed a preference for both shelter types over open areas and for shade over plants. Our results suggest shade may be used as enrichment for captive fish and re‐emphasise the importance of species‐specific welfare considerations.
