Swimming performance of European eel (Anguilla anguilla) in its juvenile, early life stage (glass eel). The dataset reports swimming curves that were derived by processing data obtained from flume experiments and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations. The dataset refers to the paper of Vezza et al. (2020) published in Scientific Reports (see references). The study (i) accommodates glass eel burst-and-coast swimming mode and estimates the active swimming time (tac), not considering coast and drift periods, (ii) estimates near-bottom velocities (Ub) experienced by the fish, rather than using bulk averages (U), (iii) investigates water temperature (T) influence on swimming ability.
