Sharks surf the slope: current updrafts reduce energy expenditure for aggregating marine predators

Yannis Papastamatiou
An animal’s energy landscape considers the power requirements associated with residing or moving through habitats. Within marine environments, these landscapes can be dynamic, as water currents will influence animal power requirements and can change rapidly over diel and tidal cycles. In channels and along slopes with strong currents, updraft zones may reduce energy expenditure of negatively buoyant fishes that are also obligate swimmers. Despite marine predators often residing within high-current area, no study has investigated...
