Résumé

Routine metabolic rates of bonnethead sharks,Sphyrna tiburo, of 95 to 4 650 g, ranged from 70.4 to 15.0 kcal kg?1 d?1. Over the size range 34 to 95 cm total length, shark swimming-velocities varied from about 29 to 67 cm s?1. Swimming velocities predicted using Weih's cost-optimization model were similar to observed velocities. The total cost of transport (the energetic cost of transporting 1 unit of body mass 1 km distance) for 1 to 8 kg sharks varied from 0.67 to 0.40 cal g?1 km?1. The “energetic range” (an estimation of the distance traveled after a 25% reduction in body weight) indicates that a 1 kg bonnethead shark would travel 500 km distance in 17 d before displaying a 25% reduction in weight. An 8 kg individual would travel 830 km in 23 d. Although the bonnethead shark is a continuously active species, its routine metabolic rate and the efficiency of its locomotory system may be similar to that of “typical” bony fishes.
