This week in Fish: Dani, Fanny and Emperors

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 23 Sep 2011

As usual, there are some great new images and movies to view.  Watch a whiptail swimming over 1 km below the surface and an oh-so-cute Pacific Leaping Blenny feeding on the rocks.  We welcome Fanny deBusserolles who is working on lanternfishes for a fortnight and Dani Fox who is processing specimens collected during the Kermadec Islands Expedition.  Thank you very much, as always, to all our contributors.
