Fishes use a lateral line system to detect movement and changes in water pressure. The sense organ is a system of sensitive mechanoreceptors organized in a network of interacting neurons along a fish body. The sensitive part of the receptor cells is located on the surface of the skin and are mostly arranged in rows. These cells send signals to the brain indicating the changes in pressure and water movements around the fish.
