The Barents Sea capelin, a schooling species, undertakes extensive migrations against the predominating current north of Norway to its spawning grounds along the Norwegian and Russian coasts. Low swimming costs (i.e. high efficiency) at cruising speeds would be advantageous for capelin, enabling allocation of more energy to reproduction. A high oxygen uptake capacity may however also be beneficial, considering the difficulty of strenuous swimming against the predominant current, and to avoid… CONTINUE READING
