Peraltilla, S., & Bertrand, S. (2014). In situ measurements of the speed of Peruvian anchovy schools. Fisheries Research, 149, 92–94.
Résumé: While speed of fish schools is critical information for parameterizing numerous ecosystem models and evaluating fishery management options, it is poorly documented. Here we present results of in situ measurements of the speed of Peruvian anchovy schools, a small pelagic species that sustain the world's largest mono-specific fishery. Instantaneous school speed was in average 0.6 ms(-1), authorizing theoretical maximum displacements of similar to 26 km day(-1).
