The purpose of this study is to show that a mathematical model of the biomechanics of the peripheral auditory system in fishes (Danak and Hastings, 2001; Finneran and Hastings, 2000) could be used to predict the onset of auditory tissue damage in different species and sizes. The model calculates relative motion between the sensory epithelia and overlying otolith in the inner ear. Excessive relative motion at this interface is believed to cause loss of the apical ciliary bundles of hair cells embedded in the epithelium.
