This week in Fish: Old content becomes new

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 30 Apr 2010

It has been a big week for the fish site.  Our new temporary employee Rebecca Field (more on Rebecca next week) and fish expert Sascha Schulz have been working very hard.  Between them they have carved up the content of 36 species fact sheets that were on the old fish website and entered these data into the new content management system.  Other exciting additons include some lovely images of a larval butterflyfish, a school of Old Wife and an Estuary Stingray.
