...Jacob L. Johansen; Otar Akanyeti; James C. Liao ABSTRACT To forage in fast, turbulent flow environments where prey is abundant, fishes must deal with the high associated costs of locomotion. Prevailing theory suggests that many species exploit hydrodynamic refuges to minimize the cost of locomotion...
