This week in Fish: YouTube movie links

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 22 Jun 2012

The site now allows embedding of movies from Youtube!  This week we have added two movies from Ian Banks and another that shows a rare Sharptail Sunfish. We were really pleased to be able to add images of Painted Sweetlip that showed the changes that occur as the fish matures. A fantastic image of a Threadfin Dragonfish by AM photographer Stuart Humphreys was the icing on the cake. Thank you as always to everyone who contributed during the week.
