... of fish locomotion are misleading. In this study, we first examine axial swimming from the two-dimensional viewpoint, detailing the limitations of this view. Then we present data on the kinematics and hydrodynamics of the dorsal fin, the anal fin and the caudal fin during steady swimming and maneuvering...

...E. M. Standen; G. V. Lauder SUMMARY Recent kinematic and hydrodynamic studies on fish median fins have shown that dorsal fins actively produce jets with large lateral forces. Because of the location of dorsal fins above the fish's rolling axis, these lateral forces, if unchecked, would cause fish...

... and digitization of a desired object in both images, and reduced digitizing error. Excursion of dorsal and anal fins (mm) was calculated by digitizing the tip of the fin ray at the trailing edge of each fin. Body excursion (mm) was calculated by digitizing the posterior attachment point of the dorsal fin...
