Abstract:

Animals must often orient through areas that are larger than their perceptual range. The blind Mexican cave fish, Astyanax fasciatus, depends on detecting self-induced near-field wave perturbations by objects via the use of its lateral line organ. Its perceptual range (less than or equal to 0.05 m) is greatly exceeded by its ecological ranging requirements (ca. 30 m).
