The shape-changing fins of fish are of great interest to engineers developing the locomotion and maneuvering capabilities of underwater and aerial systems. On page 310 of this issue, Pavlov et al. (1) find that the lymphatic circulatory system in tuna and other members of the Scombridae family of fish serves as a hydraulic system that actively changes the… CONTINUE READING
