Abstract During migration, swimming in schools provides fish with a number of behavioural and ecological advantages, including increased food supply and reduced predation risk. Previous work shows that carangiform and tunniform swimming result in energetic advantages for individuals using a diamond swimming formation. However, little is known about the potential energetic advantage associated with schooling for anguilliform fish, such as European eel. European eels migrate over a long distance… Expand
