Tony Rose is an Australian Museum Associate. He is a keen naturalist who has donated fishes to the Australian Museum Fish Collection.

He is currently assisting with the research of PhD student Greg Clancy, Jerry Olsen (Canberra University) and Stephen Debus (University of New England). Tony has been examining the dried gut contents of Black-necked Storks (Jabiru).

He brought a sample of gut contents during his visit. The sample contained small scales and bones from fishes. Of particular interest was whether some of the scales examined could have been from the introduced Redfin Perch.

Tony visited the Australian Museum Fish Department on 20 October 2005.
