A survival guide for feeble fish

D. Burago, S. Ivanov, A. Novikov

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


As avid anglers, the authors are interested in the survival chances of fish in turbulent oceans. This paper addresses this question mathematically. It is shown that a fish with bounded aquatic locomotion speed can reach any point in the ocean if the fluid velocity is incompressible, bounded, and has small mean drift.
