      Hello, I’m going to assume you mean the shark’s lateral line system? If so, it consists of a row of small pores running from the snout to the tail. Surrounding water flows through these pores, and special sensory cells sense pressure changes. This enables detection of water pressure changes and movements in the shark’s environment and helps sharks detect prey and predators.
