This week in Fish: Stephanie and Spadenose Clingfish

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 05 Apr 2012

The highlights of the week were the commencement of a new stint of employment for Stephanie Baccarella and the arrival of two specimens of Spearfish Remora. The Spearfish Remora is a pale pink fish that uses its sucking disc to attach to the gills of marlin and spearfish. These specimens are the first for the collection and will definitely feature on the website soon. There is still so much to learn about Australian fishes!  Thank you as always to all our contributors.
