... in cardiomyocytes from Pacific bonito ( Sarda chiliensis ), Pacific mackerel ( Scomber japonicus ), yellowfin tuna ( Thunnus albacares ) and Pacific bluefin tuna ( Thunnus orientalis ). The whole-cell voltage-clamp technique was used to measure the temperature sensitivity of the L-type Ca 2+ channel current ( I Ca...

... different virtual swimmers: a carangiform swimmer (i.e. a mackerel swimming like mackerel do in nature); an anguilliform swimmer (i.e. a lamprey swimming like lampreys do in nature); a hybrid swimmer with anguilliform kinematics but carangiform body shape (a mackerel swimming like a lamprey); and another...

... ), are systematically varied. The model fish is a three-dimensional (3D) mackerel-like flexible body undulating with prescribed experimental kinematics of carangiform type. Simulations are carried out for three Re spanning the transitional and inertial flow regimes, Re =300 and 4000 (viscous flow), and ∞ (inviscid flow...

...Jennifer C. Nauen; George V. Lauder SUMMARY As members of the derived teleost fish clade Scombridae, mackerel exhibit high-performance aquatic locomotion via oscillation of the homocercal forked caudal fin. We present the first quantitative flow visualization of the wake of a scombrid fish, chub...

Chub mackerel, Scomber japonicus , ranging in fork length from 20 to 26 cm, swam steadily at 1.2forklengthss −1 in a recirculating flow tank. Small, reflective particles in the flow tank were illuminated by a vertical ( xy...

...J. J. VIDELER; F. HESS Straight, forward, unrestrained swimming behaviour, with periodic lateral oscillations of body and tailfin, was described and compared for saithe and mackerel. A method was developed for kinematic analysis of forward motion, lateral displacements and body curvature, based...
