How to become a better fish

Add paired appendages

Better tail (symmetrical)

Add jaws

Loose the armor

Strengthen internal skeleton

How to become a better fish


  • Adding jaws

  • Clearly from gills

  • Mouth lined with ectoderm

  • Movement of markers: nasal opening,

  • Why jaws= value?

  • How can you get rid of a gill if gills are useful? = structural improvement

  • Note: teeth over much of mouth = ectoderm, same structure as dermal armor = bone, dentine, enamel.


Jaw types and jaw structure

primitively; cartilagenous inner structure = gill bar

Outer structure = dermal armor


Paired appendages

1. Why? – stabilize swimming

2. some primitive forms with fin fold



Advanced fish – more than 2 pair primitively.

2 pairs of fins (why two?? Functions?)

Ray fin structures – found in all sharks, skates, rays.


Bony fish skeletons more than 2 pair primitively.

Actinopterygians = ray fins

Note change in position of pelvic

Fin pair. Why??


Crossopterygian or sarcopterygian: bony fish with a fleshy fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.


Note fleshy fin types: fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.

Symmetrical = lungfish

Assymetrical = crossopterygians (extinct)

And coelacanth – marine living


Primitive: heterocercal tail fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.

Advanced bony fish = homocercal = symmetric


Placoderms fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.

Head and shoulder armor


Primitive bony fish = Amia fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.

fairly solid outer skull.

Advanced bony fish

Skull reduced to barin case, jaw and gill supports – no heavy outer armor.


Fish scales fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.

Primitive = ganoid = bone and enamel form a tile mosaic- solid.

Placoid = similar but isolated in sharks

Cycloid, ctenoid = reduced = thin, light weight.


Material of the internal skeleton fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.

Old view – since cartilage replaced by bone, cart fish are older, gave rise to bony fish

New view – Placoderms, with external bony armor and internal cartilage, arise from Agnatha –

Both bony and cartilagenous fish arise from placoderms


  • So: make sense out of it for classification fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.

  • How to strengthen skeleton and lighten skeleton

  • bony fish = osteichthyes – turn internal cartilagenous skeleton into bone for greater strength, and lighten external armor

  • cartilagenous fish = chondrichthyes – keep internal cartilagenous skeleton, but add some calcium salt, turn external armor into ‘denticles’ = tooth like scales

  • note; teeth = denticles in mouth.

  • So

  • Placoderms = armored = ancestral


Notochord – jelly filled, hydrostatic skeleton fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.


Chondrocytes fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.

Matrix of collagen

cartilage


Haversian system fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.

Haversian canal

Osteocyte (lacunae, space where cell is)

Canaliculi

Matrix is hydroxyapatite + collagen

Typical bone


Origin of bone by replacement of cartilage fin = central bone elements and muscle with a ray fringe.



Fish- placoid scale tissue, no cartilage precursor

Enamel on outside = solid

Dentine inside = has canals

Bone at base = canals and cells


Chondrichthyes tissue, no cartilage precursor

sharks, skates, rays and ratfish (Chimaera)

Ratfish weird = no scales, mollusc eaters, deep sea, not too closely related


Bony fish tissue, no cartilage precursor

Four fin types: ray fin

spine fin

flesh fin – symmetrical

flesh fin - assymetrical
