The first precise measurements of fish swimming speeds are now in. They "clocked" the| yellowfin tuna and the wahoo hitting it up at speeds of bet­ ter than 45 miles an hour. Both are oceanic game fish, and are related mackerels. Both have a reputation for speed, with scientists as well as fishermen, but no one had really believed they could do that well. Heretofore all maximum fish speeds have been estimates, and the estimates which credited any fish with a speed capa -1 bility of more than 27 miles an hour or so have recently come under scientific attack. These attacks were mathematically based. They argued that fish couldn't manage the perfect streamline flow nor produce the enormous power such a speed capability would require. Dr. \Tadimir Walters of the. University of California, Los! Angeles, opposed this argument on theoretical grounds. He reasoned the muscular structure and thin bodies of large mack erels should permit them to do better than 27 miles an hour. To convert theory into fact he land his associate, Harry L. Fierstine, fished for tuna and wahoo from a skiff off the Costa Rica coast. To measure fish swimming speeds precisely they had a complex fish speedometer. At the end of a casting rod was an insulated box in which was established a defined magnetic field. The fishing lines were marked with powdered iron at measures intervals. As the lines passed through the box, the iron disturl>ed the mag-: netic field and the rate of disturbances—which were record­ ed on tape-r-marked fish speed. In their laboratory the scien-j tists put their tape recordings through an instrument which correlated magnetic field disturbances with the time intervals in which they occurred. Jhat gave them the maxi mum speeds attained by thei fleeing hooked fish. Of three wahoos, one hit a' speed of almost 48 miles an hour. Out of! five yellowfin tuna, one reached approximately 46 miles an hour. The lowest speeds recorded were 27 miles per hour for wa- BBC APOLOGIZES LONDON (UPI>-The British Broadcasting Corp.
