Hydrodynamics of linear acceleration in Lepomis macrochirus.Wise, Tyler N.
In their natural habitat, fish rarely swim steadily. Instead they frequently accelerate and decelerate. In order to truly understand the natural locomotion of a fish, it is necessary to study the maneuvers frequently employed by the fish as it swims. This study looks at the hydrodynamics of linear acceleration produced at various flow speeds by bluegill sunfish, Lepomis macrochirus, a common caran... read more
