... the impact of the loss of sensory feedback from the pectoral fins on movement kinematics during hover behavior. Research was performed with bluegill sunfish ( Lepomis macrochirus ), a model for understanding the biomechanics of swimming and for bio-inspired design of engineered fins. The bluegill beats its...

... the manipulation itself, but also during a subsequent compensatory phase. The outcome of these changes was that fish in all treatment groups reached the same average size by sexual maturity, despite having different growth patterns. However, their growth trajectory had impacts on both pre-breeding swimming...
