...Andrew M. Carroll SUMMARY Activation and strain in the sternohyoideus (SH) were measured in vivo in five largemouth bass Micropterus salmoides . The SH is thought to actuate lower jaw depression, hyoid depression and suspensorial abduction during suction feeding in teleost fish. Sonomicrometry...
