This week we feature a blog post on Dr Jeff Leis' research. We show you how to age a shark by examining its backbone and present an image of a juvenile fish collected in French Polynesia, along with the net that collected it. We welcome Dr Barry Russell, who is currently visiting the Fish Section to further his research on lizardfishes.
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.
