Decreased critical swimming speed and increased oxygen consumption ( M- O 2 ) was found for externally tagged Atlantic cod Gadus morhua swimming at a high speed of 0·9 body length (total length, LT) s−1. No difference was found in the standard metabolic rate, indicating that the higher M- O 2 for tagged cod was due to drag force rather than increased costs to keep buoyancy.
