If you are a fish, one of the most effective ways to avoid a predator must be to leave the water. Fishes have evolved different strategies to do just that, but few manage to do so as spectacularly as the flyingfishes. It is not uncommon to see a fish glide up to 200 m.

As part of the front-end planning for a Pacific Cultures exhibition, four separate consultations with Pacific Island communities were conducted in June 2009 to inform the development of the concept brief.

This post summarises the main themes/ideas that emerged.
