... ( Zueva and Govardovskii, 1991 ; Hess, 2009 ; Novales Flamarique, 2011 ). Thus, anchovies possess color and polarization vision in the same retina, and these two forms of vision are enabled by different combinations of visual pigments. There are no clear data on the complement of visual pigments...
