  • Abstract Rattails are deep-sea fishes, that live in 200-2000 m. Voice may be the best way to communication in the deep sea environment. Muscles have been reported on the swim bladder of some rattails and they were considered as sonic muscle. However, no acoustic data was available to confirm this inference. To prove the tissue on the swimming bladder of male Coelorinchus formosanus is muscle in biochemical, histological, morphological way, according to our data, presume the muscle is sonic muscle. Male and female of C. formosanus is a rattail species in commercial ocean at southwest water Taiwan. The aims of this study were to (1) survey the tissue associated with the swim bladder of rattail species in Taiwan. Coelorinchus formosanus, C. kishinouyei, C. .leptorhinus, C. cingulatus, that the only the male possessed a pair of thin and small tissue on the anterior-dorsal part of the swim bladders and sexual dimorphism was noted in C. formosanus that only the male have sonic muscle. However, the sexes of the species of the other three species that also possessed the tissue were unable to be determined;(2) to prove that the tissue is muscle by histological evidences;(3) to estimate the intensity and isoforms of parvalbumin in the said tissue on the swim bladder and white body muscle in C. formosanus;(4) to compare the intensity and isoform types of parvalbumin in the swim bladder muscles on the swim bladders, of C. formosanus. The results show that the tissue on the swim bladder is muscle in male C. formosanus. Parvalbumin in the tissue on the swim bladder of C. formosanus were 0.8 time to white muscle, and there were 3 types parvalbumin isoforms (Parv1, Parv2, Parv3). (5) Compare the shallow and deep fish of extrinsic and intrinsic sonic muscle of (i.e. Allenbatrachus grunniens、Hoplobrotula armata and Terapon jarbua), Parv1 is the most intensity in A. grunniens and C. formosanus.
