Liao Lab Review on Fish Swimming Efficiency in Current Biology Magazine
Published: Monday, July 11, 2022
In this primer Dr. James Liao highlights multiple strategies that fish use to swim more efficiently. Some involve structural properties like tail shape and body stiffness, while others involve higher order behaviors to exploit the energy already available in the environment.
What all these strategies have in common is that they work within the physical rules imposed by hydrodynamics, facilitating ways of vorticity control that underlies efficient locomotion.
