Abstract

Swimming is an important aspect of the life history of fish in the aquatic environment. However, the physiological effects of swimming on growth, metabolism, reproduction and immunity are not fully understood in fish. Improved knowledge on the swimming physiology of fish and its application to fisheries science and aquaculture (i.e. farming a fitter fish) is currently needed in the face of global environmental changes, high fishing pressures, increased aquaculture production as well as increased concern on fish welfare. For this purpose, the FitFish satellite workshop (www.ub.edu/fitfish2010/) and the first and second symposium on the Swimming Physiology of Fish were organized as part of the 9th and 10th International Congress of Fish Biology (Barcelona, 2010 and Madison, 2012). The present symposium intends to continue efforts to bring together scientists covering various aspects of the swimming physiology of fish and present the most up-to-date information on this relevant topic.
