A few things from the last 6 months

Post  mykez on 12th August 2014, 2:42 am

Just thought id share a couple of the interesting things found in south east queensland over the last few months collected commercially by myself and a friend of mine from Queensland Sustainable Sea Life

The job isn't always pleasant especially in a 3mil wetsuit but I'd prefer to be in 12 degree water than working anywhere else.

harlequin shrimp (Hymenocera picta) these guys feed exclusively on the tube feet of starfish, they will drag one under a rock and keep it alive while they eat them over a period of a week or so!!

bluegrey carpetshark (Brachaelurus colcloughi) A particularly rare species especially in the aquarium trade. Apparently they are caught occasionally by trawlers who sell them into the industry more often than being found by collectors.

phantom velvet fish (Paraploactis kagoshimensis) This fish cannot swim and walks along the ocean floor as it doesn't have a swim bladder
