This week in Fish: Welcome to the 'fish doctor'

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 26 Oct 2012

The 'fish doctor' has been working in the collection this week. PhD student Melissa Martin works on fish doctors, a group of fish parasites also known as fish lice and tongue biters.  Rob Harcourt sent some action shots of an Eastern Angelshark having its fate 'sealed'.  Thanks to everyone who contributed.
