Are fish good athletes?

Are fish good athletes?

For Sandra Binning and Dominique Roche, its more than just a thought – they’ve built swim tunnels to test fishes’ fitness. The husband and wife duo, from the ANU Research School of Biology and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, work on exercise physiology in coral reef fish. The results may help determine if these fish are destined to survive in a climate that is predicted to deliver more intense, frequent storms.
