This week we added images of far-flung fish species; two surgeonfishes from Mauritius and a damselfish from Bali. Yes, I know this is the AUSTRALIAN Museum website, but these species also occur in Australia, so no excuse was needed. Thank you to everyone who contributed throughout the week.
The 'fish doctor' has been working in the collection this week. PhD student Melissa Martin works on fish doctors, a group of fish parasites also known as fish lice and tongue biters. Rob Harcourt sent some action shots of an Eastern Angelshark having its fate 'sealed'. Thanks to everyone who contributed.
After a long drive through winding country roads in a Museum car filled to the brim with science ‘goodies’, we arrived in Narrabri tired but excited to put on the Australian Museum’s Science Unleashed festival.
