This week we feature two of the cutest fishes you are likely to see for some time, the Red Handfish and a lumpfish. We were visited by Dr Keiichi Matsuura who continued his work on fishes in the genus Triodon.
Due to the 'inconvenience' of the Australia Day public holiday and a day of illness, additions were only made to the site on three days. The highlights were a visit by Research Associate Hiroyuki Motomura, the addition of some White Shark jaw images and a great Fanbelly Leatherjacket shot.
As part of the Sydney Festival 2011 the " Bring Your Game" forum was organized out at Campbelltown Arts Centre which featured some of Hip Hops top talents from Australia and Aotearoa - New Zealand to share in this worldwide phenomenon.
It's been a short week but a productive one. Some beautiful images were added and work continues on the 'master fish list' for the site. Best wishes to all for the Festive Season! Thanks one and all for your contributions throughout the year.
Two bark paintings from the Australian Museum’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander collection are currently on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art at Circular Quay in Sydney at the overview exhibition of work by Bardayal ‘Lofty’ Nadjamerrek AO.
