This week in Fish: Far-flung fishes

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 02 Nov 2012

This week we added images of far-flung fish species; two surgeonfishes from Mauritius and a damselfish from Bali. Yes, I know this is the AUSTRALIAN Museum website, but these species also occur in Australia, so no excuse was needed. Thank you to everyone who contributed throughout the week.
