... ( Esox lucius ) performing feeding and escape S-starts. Movements were recorded with high-speed video (250 Hz). Muscle activity was recorded from seven electrodes, one in the left adductor mandibulae and bilaterally in the anterior, midbody and posterior epaxial white muscle. Although S-shaped movements...

...H. Russ Frith; Robert W. Blake ABSTRACT The mechanical power output and hydrodynamic efficiency of northern pike, Esox lucius , during acceleration from rest (fast-start) are calculated from hydrodynamic theory for two kinematic patterns, C-starts (used in escape) and S-starts (used in prey capture...

...David G. Harper; Robert W. Blake ABSTRACT Fast-start performance of northern pike Esox lucius (mean length, 0.38m) during prey capture was measured with subcutaneously implanted accelerometers. Acceleration-time plots and simultaneous high-speed ciné films reveal four behaviours with characteristic...
