Zebrafish Swimming

Loading video...

Caption: This is a video of a larval zebrafish swimming, viewed from above. These 4-mm-long fish can move their tail back and forth up to 80 times per second, so high-speed cameras are necessary to visualize their swimming movements. This video has been slowed down to see the swimming behavior.
