This week in Fish: Find a fish launched

I don't mind saying that I'm pretty excited to be able to announce that the new Find a Fish page is online. Working on this page (and those that sit beneath it) has consumed more of my evenings than I would like to admit.  In addition, as always, some great images were added. Thanks troops!

My little interview with Tim Flannery

Professor Tim Flannery is an amazing man and has done amazing things. He is a scientist, explorer, and author and as I found out when I met him he has got a great sense of humour. Professor Flannery is someone I admire and look up to so to meet him was really special. I just wish I could spend more time with him to talk "enviro" talk!

This week in Fish: Ellie the eel

All was quiet on the web front last week because we were doing fieldwork.  We've made up for it this week with the addition of plenty of new content.  The blog posts on a wayward Sargassum Anglerfish and Ellie the eel are certainly worth a look, as are the great new images.  Thank you as always to all contributors.

An eel called Ellie

Thank you to Gavin Gatenby for putting together this impressive movie about 'Ellie' the Longfinned Eel (Anguilla reinhardtii).  As he says in the commentary, the freshwater eels are known for their impressive spawning migrations. Four species of Anguilla are known from Australian waters.
