This week in Fish: Monty the non-python

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 14 Sep 2012

Next week the 'marine team' travels to East Timor to participate in a biodiversity survey.  Despite the busy week of preparations we managed to add some interesting content.  Dr Stuart Welsh visited to work on freshwater catfishes and we received a great video on 'Monty' the Blue Groper.  Thanks to everyone who contributed.
