Fish locomotion involves the transfer of momentum to water, and is accompanied by changes in the shape of the body and surface structures like fins or scales. Despite the great diversity of fish morphologies and swimming patterns, recent advances in research have shed light on the kinematics of swimming. The motion created by fish can be analyzed in a three-dimensional space to study their center of mass and water flow patterns, and robotic models of fish can provide greater experimental control for such purposes.
