: Collection samples were conducted with a fishing authorization delivered by the Interregional Directorate of the Mediterranean Sea with the n°355 for the UMS/CNRS 3514 STELLA MARE, Università di Corsica Pasquale Paoli. The protocol experiment on the Corsican coastline was approved by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research (“Autorisation de Projet utilisant des Animaux à des Fins Scientifiques”), authorization n°9643. Experiments were made with efforts to minimise stress of individual samples, which is crucial both ethically and for the validity of behaviour observations.
