It has been a big week for the fish site. Our new temporary employee Rebecca Field (more on Rebecca next week) and fish expert Sascha Schulz have been working very hard. Between them they have carved up the content of 36 species fact sheets that were on the old fish website and entered these data into the new content management system. Other exciting additons include some lovely images of a larval butterflyfish, a school of Old Wife and an Estuary Stingray.
This week we feature a beautiful image of the Robust Ghostfish, we swim with a school of Bigeye Trevally, have a close-up look at the head of a Spotted Wobbegong and comment on why Pacific Blue-eyes aren't breeding.
This week we feature the visits of two researchers, a fish photographer page was updated from the old site, we find out about the predators of the Weeping Toadfish and as always plenty of new fishy content was added.
The 'Fish Bits' blog is updated weekly. It will post information about current happenings in the Fish Section - who's visiting and accounts of any special events. It will also list all the new species factsheets, weird and wonderful specimens and hopefully, news from the field.
