The first in two decades to exclusively integrate physiological and biomechanical studies of fish locomotion, feeding and breathing, making this book both comprehensive and unique.

The collective chapters, written by leaders in the field, provide a multidisciplinary view and synthesis of the latest information on feeding mechanics, breathing mechanics, sensory systems, stability and maueverability, skeletal systems, muscle structure and performance, and hydrodynamics of steady and burst swimming, including riverine passage of migratory species.

  • Book presents concepts in biomechanics, a rapidly expanding area of research
  • First volume in over twenty years on this subject
  • Multi-author volume with contributions by leaders in the field
  • Clear explanations of basic biomechanical principles used in fish research
  • Well illustrated with summary figures and explanatory color diagrams
