High-speed cinematography is often employed in studies on fish swimming, particularly where performance is estimated (e.g. Wardle, 1975; Eaton etal. 1977; Webb, 19786; Dorn et al. 1979; Videler, 1981). One commonly reported aspect of performance is the acceleration of fish during fast-starts (bursts of swimming from a standing start; e.g. Weihs, 1973; Webb, 1975, 1976, 1977, 197&z,b, 1982, 1983, 1986; Rand & Lauder, 1981). The present study is a critical examination of the use of cinematography… CONTINUE READING
