The aim of this paper is to analyse the emergence of functional response of a predator–prey system starting from diverse simulations of an Individual-Based Model of schooling fish. Individual characteristics can, indeed, play an important role in establishing group dynamics. The central question we address is whether or not aggregation influences predator–prey relationships.
