This week in Fish: Murray Cod Movie

This week we show movies taken at depths of 4 m and 2400 m.  The first movie shows what may be the first footage ever taken of a Murray Cod guarding its eggs in a dam.  The second movie shows a Threadfin Seasnail swimming down a deep rocky slope.  As always there are also some great images.  Thank you to everyone who contributed.
