This week in Fish: Flyingfishes in flight

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 22 Oct 2010

This week we feature some lovely images of flying fishes in flight ... or should I say glide?  There are images of a larval surgeonfish, a gudgeon in freshwater and a selection of fishes caught on hook and line.  Thank you as always to all our contributors.
