...James M. Wakeling SUMMARY Muscle fibres have a range of contractile properties from fast to slow. Traditional understanding of muscle fibre recruitment suggests that the slower fibres within a mixed muscle are used for all contractions including those at rapid speeds. However, mechanical arguments...

.... For example, FN max in Chaenocephalus aceratus (12 700±300, mean ± s . e . m ., N =18) was only 7.7% of the value found in Eleginops maclovinus (164 000±4100, N =17), which reaches a similar maximum length (85 cm). Postembryonic muscle fibre recruitment in teleost fish normally involves stratified followed...
