Description: This article discusses cardiac and metabolic physiology of early larval zebrafish (Danio rerio) reflecting parental swimming stamina. Swimming stamina in adult fish is heritable, but it is unknown if inherited traits that support enhanced swimming stamina in offspring appear only in juveniles and/or adults, or if these traits actually appear earlier in the morphologically quite different larvae.
