Table 1 Empirical model (regression) for the swimming speed of largemouth bass (B SS , m/s) using water temperature and body length (TL, cm) (Beamish, 1970)

From: Hydrodynamic fish modeling for potential-expansion evaluations of exotic species (largemouth bass) on waterway tunnel of Andong-Imha Reservoir
