Aerobic and anaerobic swimming performance of individual Atlantic cod.
Individual Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) were exercised using three different measures of swimming performance. (1) An endurance test (critical swimming speed, U(crit), protocol) designed to assessExpand

Individual variation and repeatability in aerobic and anaerobic swimming performance of European sea bass, Dicentrarchus labrax
SUMMARY Studies of inter-individual variation in fish swimming performance may provide insight into how selection has influenced diversity in phenotypic traits. We investigated individual variationExpand

Beyond U(crit): matching swimming performance tests to the physiological ecology of the animal, including a new fish 'drag strip'.
Locomotor performance of animals is of considerable interest from management, physiological, ecological and evolutionary perspectives. Yet, despite the extensive commercial exploitation of fishes andExpand

Thermal and Temporal Stability of Swimming Performance in the European Sea Bass
Studies of locomotor performance have contributed to the elucidation of how suborganismal traits ultimately relate to fitness. In terrestrial populations, exploring the physiological andExpand

Differences in Exercise Physiology between Two Atlantic Cod (Gadus morhua) Populations from Different Environments
Little attention has been given to the study of physiological variation within species of fish. This study examines whether a population of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) found in the brackish Bras d'OrExpand

Sprint Swimming Performance of Juvenile European Sea Bass
Abstract Despite its potential for determining animal success in a variety of ecologically important situations, very little is known about the sprint swimming performance of fishes. To evaluateExpand

Swimming Ability and Ecological Performance of Cultured and Wild European Sea Bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) in Coastal Tidal Ponds
Locomotor performance is commonly used to predict ecological performance of animals and is often considered a proxy for Darwinian fitness. In fish, swimming performance is often measured in theExpand
