This week in Fish: We're back!

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 28 Sep 2012

Despite the heat and some logistical challenges, we had a very productive time in East Timor. Eight dives were made and many specimens collected. The specimens will be shipped soon and then the process of identifying the 'small things' can begin in earnest.

The week has been a short one, hence the paucity of new content.  Thanks as always to all contributors.
