Abstract

A study was carried to observe the morphology of electrosensory fine structure organ (Ampullae of Lorenzini) of Shark Fishes Carcharhinus melanopterus, C. limbatus and Chiloscyllium griseum. This organ is very sensitive to several kinds of stimulus especially with regard to prey location, direction and mating. In the laboratory, a section where the sensory organ can be found was isolated from dermis layer of the sharks's head. A scanning electron microscope (SEM) was used to observe and produce images of the sensory organ. Images that were obtained from Carcharhinus melanopterus, C. limbatus and Chiloscyllium griseum were in the form of cluster. Sensory canals connecting the ampullae and the pores were found to be different in length and arrangement for different species.
