This week in Fish: Bold Movies

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 05 Apr 2013

It's a mixed bag of fishes this week; from a small tropical pipefish to a fiddler ray from cooler southern waters.

For some years I have been receiving images and movies from the intrepid Bold & Beautiful swimmers.  Starting at 7 am every day of the year, they brave the waves over at Manly, northern Sydney. This week they have outdone themselves. Four of the movies below were sent by Gaétan and Michel.  Thank you mermen!

Blue Razorfish, Iniistius pavo
Eastern Red Scorpionfish, Scorpaena jacksoniensis
Lyretail Dartgoby, Ptereleotris monoptera
