This week in Fish: Cod and Galaxias

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 19 Nov 2010

This week, we feature images of a cod swimming more than 1 km below the surface.  From one extreme to the other, we have added images of juvenile Common Galaxias schooling in a shallow pool.  Other additions include common fishes from coastal waters of south-eastern Australia. Thank you as always to all our contributors!
