This week in Fish: undescribed anglerfish and bellowsfish

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 08 Apr 2011

This week I was delighted to add two beautiful images of the undescribed 'Bare Island' anglerfish. Also added were a 'new species' for the site, the Little Bellowsfish plus some great images of a Common Galaxias and a Scribbled Unicornfish from remote Middleton Reef. From closer to home, the Horned Blenny makes an ever-so-cute appearance. As always, thank you to all contributors!

Find a fish:

Columns have been added to the Find a fish table to show the number of species in each family on the site and the total number of species for the family in Australia.

'Old' visitors:

We are still adding images of visitors who appeared on the old site and were not migrated. This week it is the turn of colleagues from New Zealand and Japan.
