This week in Fish: Whale Shark sighting

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 21 Apr 2011

During the week we reported on a Whale Shark sighting in Botany Bay.  Teagan Marzullo visited to examine the spines of rays in the collection and a small 'Querying the site' image gallery was added.  Of course there were also plenty of new images added.  Thank you to everyone who contributed.

Several people have told me that they have trouble finding particular pages on the site.  I hope that the new Querying the site pages will solve the problem.
