Comparative Study of Lips in Three Hill-Stream Fishes (Botia almorhae; Homaloptera brucei and Schizothorax richardsonii) of Kumaun Region: A SEM Investigation

Chukwunonso Gerald Iheoma

The lips and associated structures; in different groups of fishes are greatly modified in relation to the characteristic mode of feeding; food preference and the mode of life exhibited by the fish. The successful maintenance of fish populations in challenging environments requires responsive adjustments in their behaviour; morphology and physiology and these have been reflected by modifications at the level of their organ systems; organs and tissues. The lips are no exception to this. A number of the multifunctional roles of the fish lips and associated structures that are discussed incorporate distinctive morphological feature that will be highlight in this study.
