Functional Properties of the Fish Olfactory System

  • K. B. Døving
Part of the Progress in Sensory Physiology book series (PHYSIOLOGY, volume 6)


The olfactory system in vertebrates comprises a highly specialized sensory organ for detection and identification of minute quantities of chemicals in the environment. Experimental studies have documented the role played by olfactory information in social relationships, prey or predator recognition, and the search for food. The demands imposed by the aquatic environment have made the olfactory apparatus of fish a sensory system with many specialized features. At present only a few properties of the fish olfactory organ have been investigated.
