... Gobiidae sonic mechanism sonic muscle grunt tonal call Fishes have evolved the largest diversity of sound-generating mechanisms for acoustical communication among vertebrates ( Myrberg and Lugli, 2006 ). However, there exists no commonly accepted classification, mainly because various taxa...

... are generated by rapid contractions of sonic muscles that insert on a broad tendon surrounding ventrally the cranial sac of the swimbladder. The piranha swimbladder is thought to play an important role in sound production as an impedance-matching device and as a resonator. However, the vibratory capacities...

... electromyograms. Single, simultaneous twitches of the bilateral sonic muscles produce a single sound pulse consisting of a two-to three-cycle acoustic waveform. Typical disturbance calls at 18 °C consist of trains of 2–15 pulses with a sound pressure level (SPL) of 74 dB re 20 μPa at 10 cm, a peak frequency...

... of Biologists 1999 The muscles enveloping the caudal pole of the Pollimyrus swimbladder are strongly dimorphic in both total size and muscle fiber diameter, and local anesthesia of these muscles renders males mute. We conclude that these muscles are sonic muscles used for generating grunts, moans...
