The effect of steady magnetic field on movement velocity of pectoral fins in trout (Salmo trutta L.) larvae was determined. Newly hatched trout larvae were exposed to magnetic field (51-70 mT). Steady magnetic field was found to cause an increase in movement velocity of pectoral fins of larvae. The number of movements increased significantly until the 6th min after magnetic field application, whereupon - beginning from the 9th min - it gradually dropped.
