The Neuromast Organs
The Neuromast Organs The neuromast organ in prey fish. Note the cupolas are positioned in the dermis and are not exposed to the external part of the fish's body. Prey fish can muffle pressure waves or nearby movements around them and can differentiate whether the movements are caused by the flow of water around them or the approach of a predator.
