Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The data file contains the processed data for each individual fish measured at each time point. The data is categorized by treatment and week number. Treatment describes the type of chemical used to ablate the lateral line system. Week describes the treatment groups and the time point through eight weeks. The five main metrics described in our paper are the following: nearest neighbor distance or NND (unit: body length), time in school (percentage), angular bearing (unit: degrees), angular elevation (unit: degrees), and speed (body length per second).
