... fishes have a remarkably different morphology (elongated snout,small hyoid, immobile pectoral girdle) and feeding strategy (pivot feeding:bringing the small mouth rapidly close to the prey by neurocranial dorsorotation). As a result, it is unclear how suction is generated in Syngnathidae. In this study...
