The 'official'* southern limit to the distribution of the Sargassum Anglerfish, Histrio histrio is Burrill Lake, New South Wakes (35.37°S). This movie, kindly sent to us by Kerryn Wood (Sapphire Coast Marine Discovery Centre, Eden) shows a fish filmed in 18 March 2011 at Bar Beach, Merimbula (36.85°S), well south of the known range of the species. Thank you Kerryn!
It was a 'week of sharks'. The highlight was the addition of some quite disturbing images of a White Shark being 'strangled' by a plastic packing strap. Other less upsetting images, including two of Galapagos Sharks, were also added to the site. Thank you as always to all of you who contributed and commented throughout the week.
