The swimming performance of nine species of Southern California fish was tested in a flume at velocities of 42 to 117 cmlsecond. Genyonmus lineatus demonstrated the fastest continuous swimming ability of 61 crn/second, Hypsum cayi the slowest, 4 2 cdsecond. Five embiotocids tested demonstrated similar continuous swimming speeds ranging from 42 to 52 cmhecond. Burst swimming abilities were in excess of 100 cmlsecond for four of five species tested; G. lineatw attained 137 cmlsecond… CONTINUE READING
