Using a functional approach, we quantified water motion and the distribution of fish swimming modes across five habitat zones and four exposure regimes commonly found on coral reefs. There were major spatial variations in net flow velocity (7.4-43.2 cm s-1) and rates of flow direction change (0.06-0.66 Hz) among habitats of different depth. Water motion within the shallow crest and flat habitats appeared to be largely wave driven, with rates of flow direction change (0.63-0.66 Hz) corresponding...[Show more]
