Swimming speed of fish as a factor in gear research
MetadataShow full item record
The hydrodynamic resistance of the bodies of several species of commercially important marine fish has been measured. Based on the hydrodynamic resistance and the energy metabolism of the fish, theoretical swimming speeds and distances have been calculated. It is suggested that gear speeds of up to six knots may be required for species which react strongly to active trawling gear.
