Swimming activities and costs in free-living coral reef wrasses
Estimates of the energetic costs associated with locomotion in free-living animals are difficult to find for aquatic animals. This is largely due to the technical difficulties of applying methods commonly used for air-breathing terrestrial taxa (e.g. doubly-labelled water) to aquatic environments. Consequently, there is a paucity of information on the activity costs of free-living fishes. Preliminary indications are that swimming can be a significant energetic expense for fishes. Swimming may...[Show more]
