Some of the new content added this week has a 'Manly' flavour.  How good is your knowledge of Sydney fishes?

The Oarfish video that was added last week was so exciting, we decided to give you another dose.  See the new video half-way down the oarfish factsheet. And at risk of overcooking the Oarfish topic, there is a link in the 'Related items' list (above, right) to an old movie that shows a beached Oarfish.

As always, thank you to everyone who contributed images and information.
