Subject Area
Feilenfisch. Schwimmen durch Wellenbewegung der Rücken- und Afterflossen mit zusätzlicher Unterstützung durch die Brustflossen. Plötzliche Richtungsänderung der Wellenbewegung bedingt Wechsel vom Vorwärts- zum Rückwärtsschwimmen (sog. Reversieren); Steuern durch Biegen des Schwanzstiels; Balancieren (Drehen des Rumpfes um die Längsachse) des mit dem Kopf nach unten stehenden Fisches.
Rhino filefish. Swimming by undulating of the dorsal and anal fins with additional support of the pectoral fins. A sudden change of direction of undulation effects the change from swimming forward to backward swimming; steering by bending of the tail; balancing (turning of the body around its longitudinal axis) of the fish with its head directed downwards.
