...Kara L. Feilich ABSTRACT Comparative studies of fish swimming have been limited by the lack of quantitative definitions of fish gaits. Traditionally, steady swimming gaits have been defined categorically by the fin or region of the body that is used as the main propulsor and named after major fish...

... maintain an upright posture despite perturbations from the vortices, but also because the fish swim more unsteadily: streamwise vortices increase the rate of maneuvers and accelerations, as well as losses of heading (spills). Most previous work on the interaction of fish with vortices has focused...

... amplitude was about 70% less. Lateral body center acceleration increased quadratically with speed. Head angle decreased with flow speed. While these values are different from those found in fish swimming in uniform flow, the strategy for locomotion is the same; fish adjust to increasing flow by increasing...
