The ability to maintain position in a current (station-holding) was determined for the plaicePleuronectes platessa on a simple form of habitat structure, substratum ripples. Twelve sinusoidal combinations of ripple wavelength and amplitude were tested, with wavelengths approximating 0.5, 1, 2, and 5 times fish total length. Although ripple flow patterns varied, all provided regions of retarded flow in the ripple troughs. Therefore, ripples affected station-holding performance in the following… CONTINUE READING
