Aquarium for Hasppy Aquarists.
In Worcester, England, UK,
Are Fish-Keepers the Happiest Pet Owners?
Watching tropical fish swimming about in a tank is a peculiarly calming experience - which is perhaps why they're so often to be seen in dentists' surgeries. It might also help to explain why people who keep fish are the happiest and most contented breed of pet owner. According to a new study by psychologist Professor Richard Wiseman, pet choice is often a good indication of personality. Dog owners tend to be cheerful, while cat lovers are dependable and emotionally sensitive. Reptile fanciers are independent - and have no sense of humour. But no one is happier than a keeper of fish, according to the professor's research. Click here to read more.
Long Finned Zebra Danios
From the University of California at Irvine,
How Embryos Regulate Vitamin A Derivatives.
Human embryos that get too much or too little retinoic acid, a derivative of Vitamin A, can develop into babies with birth defects. New research at UC Irvine shows for the first time how embryonic cells may regulate levels of retinoic acid, giving scientists insight into how it acts as a signal between cells to control development of the brain, limbs and many other tissues in embryos. Zebra fish embryos used in this study were genetically engineered to be unable to make enough retinoic acid. The UCI scientists implanted tiny retinoic acid-soaked beads, which gradually released retinoic acid into the embryos. Using genetically altered fish embryos in which cells become fluorescent in response to retinoic acid when illuminated with an ultraviolet light, the scientists tracked how the retinoic acid moved within the embryos. This study is among the first to examine the distribution of retinoic acid. Click here to read more.
The expanding Shedd Aquarium
In Chicago, Illinois,
Shedd building project to ease space crunch
They say they're packed in like sardines at the Shedd Aquarium -- the folks who work there, that is, not the fish. To remedy the office squeeze, the Shedd is planning to construct 24,000 square feet of new workspace on part of the roof of the Oceanarium, beginning in the fall of 2008. You can see the slight changes in the drawings above.

Egg Dummies on Cichlid Males
At Konstanz University in Germany,
Gene Identified that Produces Egg Dummies.
Scientists identified a gene involved in producing yellow pigment cells in oval spots on the fishes' fins. These markings, known as egg-dummies, are found on the anal fins of the male fish and are crucial to mating. The fish are known as maternal mouth-brooders, because once the female has laid her eggs, she picks them up in her mouth. Attracted by what she takes to be eggs - actually the egg-dummy markings - the female then approaches the male. When the female is close to the anal fin, the male discharges sperm into the female's mouth to fertilize the eggs. Click here to read more.
Chinese Paddlefish
On the Yangtze River in China,
World's Largest River Fish Feared Extinct
The adult Chinese paddlefish, shown above, was found in the Yangtze River in October 1993. The giant river fish species, the world's largest, has not been seen in the waterway since 2003, and no juveniles have been spotted since 1995. Scientists now fear that the fish is near extinction.

Stranded Minke Whale
In the Amazon Rainforest, Brazil,
Whale Swims up Amazon Tributary.
An 18-foot (5.4-meter) Minke whale ran aground on a sandbar in Brazil's Amazon jungle, some 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) from the Atlantic Ocean, Brazilian media reported Friday. The Globo television agency broadcast images of dozens of people gathered along the Tapajós River splashing water on the animal, whose back and dorsal fin were exposed to the hot Amazon sun. Click here to read more.
Giant mekong Catfish Caught and Released.
On the MeKong River in Cambodia,
8-Foot Giant Catfish Caught and Released.
Captured just before midnight on November 13 by fishers in Cambodia, this Mekong giant catfish is 8 feet long (2.4 meters long) ands weighs 450 pounds (204 kilograms). "This is the only giant catfish that has been caught this year so far, making it the worst year on record for catch of giant fish species," said Zeb Hogan (far right in the picture above), a fisheries biologist at the University of Reno in Nevada. After collecting data on the fish, Hogan released it unharmed. Giant catfish were once plentiful throughout Southeast Asia's Mekong River watershed, including the Tonle Sap River—home of the fish in these exclusive pictures taken near Phnom Penh. But in the last century the Mekong giant catfish population has declined by 95 to 99 percent, scientists say. Only a few hundred adult giant catfish may remain. Since 2000 five to ten fish have been caught by accident each year throughout the Mekong area. Click here to read more.
Sharks and Rays facing Extinction.
In the Mediterranean Sea,
Sharks and Rays Facing Oblivion.
he great white shark is among 30 species of sharks and rays fast swimming toward oblivion in the Mediterranean Sea, a new report warns. The newly published World Conservation Union (IUCN) report identifies the waters between Europe and Africa as having the highest percentage of threatened sharks and rays in the world. Some 42 percent of Mediterranean species are at risk, says the IUCN Red List assessment, performed by the conservation body's Shark Specialist Group. The group blames the plummeting populations on habitat degradation, sport angling, human disturbance, and over-fishing, including fish caught as unintended bycatch. "Our analyses reveal the Mediterranean Sea as one of the world's most dangerous places on Earth for sharks and rays," Claudine Gibson, IUCN Shark Specialist Group program officer and co-author of the report, said in a statement. "Bottom-dwelling species appear to be at greatest risk in this region, due mainly to intense fishing of the seabed." In the photo above the seabed-hugging Maltese skate (top) and the shortfin mako shark (bottom) are 2 of 13 critically endangered species in the Mediterranean. Click here to read more.
