During his visit Peter x-rayed many specimens of Australian Smelt to examine geographic trends in fin ray counts.  He also took tissue samples from a number of freshwater and estuarine species, including Estuary Catfish, Estuary Glassfish and Fly-specked Hardyhead.  Find out more about Peter and his research.
