How fishes save energy : exploring biomechanical and physiological performance of locomotion

Swimming ability has contributed to the evolutionary success of fishes, and its mechanics have been studied extensively across groups. Fishes exhibit an astounding diversity of locomotor behaviors, from classic swimming with their body and fins to jumping, flying, walking, and collective behaviors such as schooling. During my talk, I will discuss how fish can increase locomotor efficiency during solitary and collective swimming across a range of speeds.
