Are fish good athletes?
The comparative athleticism of fish probably isn’t a thought that crosses many people’s minds. For Sandra Binning and Dominique Roche, its more than just a thought – they’ve built swim tunnels to test fishes’ fitness.

The results may help determine if these fish are destined to survive in a climate that is predicted to deliver more intense, frequent storms.
