.... This paper examines how the lateral line and vision affect body kinematics and hydrodynamic habitat selection of rainbow trout ( Oncorhynchus mykiss ) exposed to vortices generated behind a cylinder.

... during the swimming cycle primarily serve to optimize vortices formed by the ejected water rather than to affect the speed of the ejected flow. Optimal vortex formation is favorable in fast-swimming jellyfish because,unlike the jet funnelling mechanism, it allows for the minimization of energy costs...
