This fortnight in Fish

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 07 Sep 2012

We didn't do a summary post last Friday, so this 'week' is a double-whammy.  There is some brilliant new content, the highlight for me was the underwater footage of Orange Roughy. Fantastic stuff! Thank you as always to all contributors.
