This week in Fish: Gotta luv a BRUV!

By: Mark McGrouther, Category: Science, Date: 16 Nov 2012

A BRUV... you know, a baited remote underwater video.  BRUVs film fishes as they go about their business.  Check out the two rare fishes in Hamish Malcolm's movie taken at the Solitaries (top link).  As usual, my gratitude goes to the great community of 'fish folk' who make these pages possible.
