Next week the 'marine team' travels to East Timor to participate in a biodiversity survey. Despite the busy week of preparations we managed to add some interesting content. Dr Stuart Welsh visited to work on freshwater catfishes and we received a great video on 'Monty' the Blue Groper. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
We didn't do a summary post last Friday, so this 'week' is a double-whammy. There is some brilliant new content, the highlight for me was the underwater footage of Orange Roughy. Fantastic stuff! Thank you as always to all contributors.
It was packing week. Amanda and Sally have worked hard to amass all the gear required for our upcoming trip to Timor Leste. More on that topic to come. Mark's interview with Radio Eastside is now online. As to 'fishy stuff', there was plenty of it. Thank you all for your contributions.
This week we were visited by Dr Bruce Robison from MBARI. Bruce gave a fascinating presentation on deepwater animals. Another highlight was watching footage of a Luderick spawning aggregation. I had never before seen the colour change shown by the males.
