Fish hearing specialists (e.g., goldfish, holocentrids, clupeoids, mormyrids) have evolved specialized structures (e.g., Weberian ossicles, swimbladder diverticulae, gas-filled bullae) to enhance their auditory frequency range and threshold sensitivity. The inner ears of anabantoid fish are encased in membranous cranial bones and are protruded into air-filled suprabranchial chambers. This research was intended to test the hypothesis that the gas bubbles inside the suprabranchial chambers may… CONTINUE READING
