... velocity. When comparing the highest performing individual of each species, the mean peak epaxial muscle strain during the period of peak power of royal knifefish was approximately two times the absolute peak epaxial strain (which occurred after the period of peak power) of largemouth bass and bluegill...

... and power production were measured in isolated bundles of red fibres from 0.5 L by the work loop technique. Power was maximal at 3–4 Hz and fell to less than 50% of maximum after 6 Hz. Based on the timing of activation, muscle strain, tail beat frequencies and forces in the caudal tendon while swimming, we...
