This study examines swimming in fish as a function of the performance of the locomotor musculature. Aspects of evolutionary adaptation and scaling relevant to swimming performance in fish are introduced. The concepts of resistance and capacity adaptations are illustrated in relation to the evolution of the suborder Notothenioidei to the antarctic environment. Alterations in hydrodynamics, swimming performance and efficiency with growth/scaling are discussed.
