Abstract: The sensory canal system of elasmobranchs
has been studied by several early workers. Garman
(1888) described the gross morphology
of the system in several species of sharks and
rays. A detailed account of the morphology and
innervation of the sensory canals was given by
Ewart (1891) for the shark, Laemargus, and
by Ewart and Mitchell (1891) for the skate,
Raia batis. Johnson (1917) described the structure
and development of the lateral canals of
the sharks, Mustelus canis and Squalus acanthias,
and Norris and Hughes (1920) provided
detailed information on the innervation of the
head and lateral canals in the same two species.
