Ocean bodies have very high aspect ratios, which enable them to be approximated as two-dimensional (2D). The 2D flows are distinct from the three-dimensional (3D) counterparts, which are prone to produce a wide range of coherent motions such as eddies and jets that live a long time before being dissipated. In this project, we are going to study how collective fish swimming interact with the coherent motions in the ocean. Fishes are small compared to the coherent eddies and jets, but the fish school's collective motion can have a non-trivial impact on the jets and eddies. This project will help to inform the environmental-related decision making such as regulations on overfishing.
