Fast-start locomotor behavior is important for escaping from predators and for capturing prey. To examine the effects of size and other aspects of developmental morphology on fast-start performance, the kinematics of the fast-start escape behavior were studied through early post-hatching development in three salmonid species: chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) and brown trout (Salmo trutta). These three species, while morphologically and… CONTINUE READING
