This week in Fish: Bastard Trumpeter and Childish Pearleye

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 16 Sep 2011

This week we were visited by Adrian Flynn, who worked with John Paxton on specimens of Dana Lanternfish.  We posted an image of the strangely-named Bastard Trumpeter and saw the addition of an image of a Childish Pearleye - a new family for the site.  Thank you to all who contributed!
