The body attack angle of common bream Abramis brama varied with swimming speed and was best described by  = −3·32 (±0·24) − 9·23 (±0·54)eu(r2 = 0·56, P < 0·0001; ±1s.e. given in parentheses), where  is the body attack angle and u is swimming speed. The hypothesis that neutrally buoyant fishes may swim with body attack angles deviating increasingly from 0° as the swimming speed decreases is supported.
