  • Locomotion Myomere- Bands of muscle along the sides of fish used for locomotion. Lateral line- A visible line running along the length of a fish body. It detects vibrations that allow fish to swim together in a school.

  • Reproduction Migration is the regular movement of an organism from one location to another. Examples?? A few fish have a migratory pattern opposite that of the salmon. They will spend a majority of their lives in rivers, migrating to the ocean to reproduce this is known as a catadromous behavior. (They migrate from fresh water to the ocean to reproduce.)
  • Slide 10
  • Hermaphroditism A situation in which an animal has the reproductive organs of both sexes. See page 152.
  • Slide 11
  • Reproduction 1.Internal Fertilization: is a result of direct transfer of sperm from the male to the female. This occurs among sharks and other cartilaginous fish. The male has claspers located next to the anal fins used for directly depositing sperm into the female.
  • Slide 12
  • 2.External fertilization. Most marine fish reproduce in this way. Fish spawn or release their gametes into the water, after a period of swimming in courtship patterns. 3.Thousands of eggs are released in some cases millions. When the eggs meet the sperm in the water, fertilization takes place and the embryo begins to develop in the fertilized egg. 4.By producing many fertilized eggs, the chances of at lease some of the eggs hatching and then some of the resulting larvae surviving into adulthood are greatly increased.

  • Oviparous A type of development in which eggs are hatched outside a females body. Viviparous A type of development in which the young obtain their nutrients directly from the mother and are birthed live.
