Fish got a lateral line system that allows them to sense small changes in water movement.

It is a series of shallow canals placed on the sides of the fish. Those canals are made up of cells that are sensitive to changes in water movement.

Lateral lines let fish feel the movement of distant animals that create water currents as they swim.

Very useful for predation.
