... al., 1973 ). Experimental cunner were 16.5±1.8 cm (mean±s.d.) standard length (SL), whereas tautog were 28±5.6 cm SL. Fish were fed tri-weekly using live Asian shore crabs, sandworms and cut squid. Tautog and cunner were killed by a blow to the head and double pithing. The pectoral fin...

... textured environments and regularly interact with textured surfaces. Here we explore texture sensation in a different type of vertebrate limb by investigating touch and potential texture encoding mechanisms in the pectoral fins of fishes, the forelimb homologs. We investigated the pectoral fins...

...Matthew H. Green; Robert K. Ho; Melina E. Hale SUMMARY Pectoral fins are known to play important roles in swimming for many adult fish; however, their functions in fish larvae are unclear. We examined routine pectoral fin movement during rhythmic forward swimming and used genetic ablation to test...

... to escape the oncoming flow. We also found that, despite the large size of its pectoral fins, E. tetrazonum is capable of producing only very weak negative lift forces with fins. These substrate-directed forces likely act in conjunction with upstream-directed frictional forces between the tail, anal...

...). Both species employed their pectoral, anal and caudal fins in order to decelerate during prey capture. However, largemouth bass protracted their pectoral fins more and faster,likely contributing to the greater magnitude of deceleration in the species. The primary mechanism for increased deceleration...

...C. D. Wilga; G. V. Lauder ABSTRACT Pectoral fins are one of the major features of locomotor design in ray-finned fishes and exhibit a well-documented phylogenetic transition from basal to derived clades. In percomorph fishes, the pectoral fins are often used to generate propulsive force via...
