A miniature water tunnel was used to observe movements of cupulae of the lateral line neuromasts of free swimming Menidia fry. Cinephotomicrographs were studied to quantify the relationship between cupular bending and speed of water flow, at different stages of maturation. The
results are compared with previous studies on the stabilization of schooling behavior in developing Menidia.
