How Do Fish...HEAR?

People hear by detecting sound vibrations. Our ears and brain translate vibrations into sounds and language. Fish hear, but their "ears" are on the inside. Bony fishes detect vibrations through their "earstones" called otoliths. Both people and fish use parts of their ears to help them with balance.
