Abstract: The swimming capacity of Barbus bocagei was measured with the critical swimming speed (Ucrit) standard test in a modified Blazka-type swim tunnel. Sixty B. bocagei were tested and they exhibited a mean S.D. Ucrit of 0.81 +/- 0.11 m/s or 3.1 +/- 0.86 total lengths per second (LT/s). Sex had no effect on Ucrit but significant differences were found between the swimming performance of fish with distinct sizes.
