4: Fishes I Structure and function Several sets of bones form the floor of the mouth and wrap around the buccal cavity to connect to other cranial elements. The most rostral is the hyoid arch, involved in expansion of the buccal cavity. Following the hyoid arch are the branchial arches, which hold the gill structures, and, most caudally, the pharyngeal jaws, which bear teeth and help the fish eat prey. During feeding, jaw-depressor muscles rotate the lower jaw ventrally, causing the jaws to protrude forward.
