Burst activity, requiring sustained and intense effort that cannot be maintained for very long (from a few seconds to tens of seconds, depending on the length of the fish, and the water temperature). This level of activity is associated with extreme acceleration (“darting”, “fast-start activity”) and leaping, i.e. violent activity of short duration. Practically all the muscular power used is provided by anaerobic mechanisms (in the “white” muscles) involving transformation of muscular glycogen… Expand
