Heart rate and stroke volume contribution to cardiac output in swimming yellowfin tuna: response to exercise and temperature.
Cardiac performance in the yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares, 673-2470 g, 33-53 cm fork length, FL) was examined in unanesthetized fish swimming in a large water tunnel. Yellowfin tuna were fittedExpand

Review: Analysis of the evolutionary convergence for high performance swimming in lamnid sharks and tunas.
Elasmobranchs and bony fishes have evolved independently for more than 400 million years. However, two Recent groups, the lamnid sharks (Family Lamnidae) and tunas (Family Scombridae), displayExpand
