Abstract

While much is known about form and function in the adult fish ear, there is little information available a to how auditory function changes developmentally in fish. This paper briefly reviews what is known about the development of form and function of the teleost ear and discusses the importance this may have to both the aquaculture setting and to fisheries managers.
