ⓘ Rostral organ

The rostral organ of the coelacanth or similar in many other fish such as Anchovy is a large gel-filled cavity in the snout, with three pairs of canals to the outside.

It is surrounded by an insulating layer of adipose tissue and is innervated by the superficial of the optic nerve. Its anatomy and innervation suggest it is an electroreceptive organ used for finding prey in the dark. This is confirmed by experiments which showed that coelacanths react to electrical fields created by the submersible.
