A modification of Gray and Hancock's theoretical method for studying propulsion of spermatozoa was used to estimate the energy expenditure of swimming anchovy, Engraulis mordax, larvae. Wave parameters obtained from photographs of feeding anchovy larvae were incorporated into a ti me dependent sinusoidal body displacement function which is used in the iterated energy integrals of the model. The integrals were numerically evaluated by 2-dimensional 16-point Gaussian-Legendre quadrature. The… CONTINUE READING
