Friday Harbor Labs is offering a Fish Swimming course for graduate  
students and postdocs

Title: Fish Swimming: Kinematics, Ecomorphology, Behavior &  
Environmental Physiology

Instructors: Paolo Domenici (CNR Italy) and John Steffensen  
(University of Copenhagen)

Dates: July 22nd-August 23rd, 2019
5 weeks: M-F 8-5; S 8-12

Course description: Fish swimming is a multidisciplinary area of  
research that encompasses biomechanics, physiology, ecology and  
behavior. Knowledge of fish swimming is relevant both for students  
interested in mechanisms of locomotion, and those interested in  
locomotor adaptations to the environment. The main subjects will be 1)  
the kinematics and performance of swimming in fish using various  
locomotory modes, 2) the ecomorphology of fish locomotion, 3)  
locomotor strategies, 4) metabolic aspects of fish swimming, and 5)  
the effect of various environmental factors on fish swimming. These  
topics will be treated in lectures and laboratory sessions. Students  
will learn techniques of video analysis, kinematics, energetics and  
respirometry. The first half of the course will have an emphasis on  
lectures and explanations of techniques for studying fish swimming in  
the laboratory. In the second half of the course, emphasis will be  
placed on laboratory work. Students will pursue independent research  
projects. Enrolment will be limited to 15 graduate students.

More information (including tuition and financial aid) can be found at:

the course in previous years:

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Applications will be accepted until February 1st  
2019 or later, if space is available. Early applications are  
encouraged. Financial aid is available to students from all countries.
