This week in Fish: Ellie the eel

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 25 Mar 2011

All was quiet on the web front last week because we were doing fieldwork.  We've made up for it this week with the addition of plenty of new content.  The blog posts on a wayward Sargassum Anglerfish and Ellie the eel are certainly worth a look, as are the great new images.  Thank you as always to all contributors.
