This week in Fish: Incredible eel movie

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 30 Mar 2012

Despite having a few days off work with a cold, the week turned out to be very exciting on the web front.  We added a great new video to the museum's YouTube channel, plus added some stunning new images.  Thanks as always to everyone who contributed.

Today we added a fantastic new movie to the Australian Museum YouTube Channel.  The footage shows four large moray eel leptocephali swimming in Indonesia. Information about these fish will soon be published in a paper by Dr Michael Miller.
