Abstract

The author carried out an experiment for the dynamical swimming force of crusian carp, Carassius carassius. The experimental water tank was made of 4mm thick transparent acryl board in the right hexahedral shape (400L$\times$240W$\times$800H mm). The water temperature in the tank ranged 20.6$^{\circ}C$ to 21.2$^{\circ}C$. The water level in the tank was maintained 70cm high from the bottom. The measurement of the swimming force was carried out by use of strain gauge. The results obtained can be summarized as follows: 1) The momentary maximum swimming force F sub(M) (g) and the sustainable maximum swimming force F sub(s) (g) can be expressed as a function of the body weight W(g). F sub(M) =1.45W, F sub(s) =0.29W where the momentary maximum swimming force means the highest value, and the sustainable maximum swimming force means the mean high value sustained for 4 to 5 seconds presented in the recording paper. 2) F sub(M) and F sub(s) can be expressed as a function of the body length L(cm). F sub(M) =0.11L super(2.63), F sub(s) =0.15L super(1.77) 3) The coefficient of hydraulic resistance for crusian carp was derived as 0.287.
