The ability of the ophiuroid Amphiura filiformis to alert conspecifics to the presence of a predator was investigated. Our preliminary findings indicate that intraspecific communication of an alarm signal does not occur and that, ultimately the motivation for altering behaviour in response to a stimulus is not oriented to the population as a whole.
