This week in Fish: 'Habitat road trip'

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 05 Oct 2012

This week we go on a 'habitat road trip', as we watch Golden Perch in the green waters of Blowering Dam, a snailfish swimming in the ocean depths, a stargazer bursting from the sediment and pipefish living between the tentacles of an anemone in the clear waters of Komodo Island.  Thank you everyone!
