Electric Eel lights Christmas Tree
In Japan
Electric Eel Lights Christmas Tree.
Two aluminum panels inside an Electric Eelís tank act as electrodes, capturing the power needed to light the tree. Kazuhiko Minawa, who thought up the idea, spent two months devising a system that would capture the animalís electric power. Click here to read more. Click here to see a video.
From Nigeria in West Africa
Breakthrough needed in Catfish Production.

Managing Director/ Chief Executive of Aquaticulture Projects Limited, Israel Adediran, told BusinessDay in an interview that Nigeria should take a cue from Singapore which has significantly grown its capacity in fish farming as a result of its application of modern aquaculture practice. "The catfish business has presently gotten to a revolutionary stage with over 55 innovations that have taken place. For instance, when we were in the University, we were taught that catfish would grow to 200grammes in 9 months if you stock at 2 fish per square metres. But today, people stock 300 fish per square metres and still grow their catfish to 1.5kg on the average in 5 months. That is why so many people are now showing interest in catfish. Take for instance, Singapore is a like a dot on our map. It is about the size of Bayelsa State in Nigeria with a population of about 3.5million people. Yet, they are responsible for 30 per cent of the world's tropical fish. This makes their airport the second largest cargo airport in the world; and tropical fish is the singular largest airfreight item in Singapore". Click here to read more.

Stickleback Fish
From Stanford University in California
Same Gene Determines Color in Fish and Humans. 
When humans began to migrate out of Africa about 100,000 years ago, their skin color gradually changed to adapt to their new environments. And when the last Ice Age ended about 10,000 years ago, marine ancestors of ocean-dwelling stickleback fish experienced dramatic changes in skin coloring as they colonized newly formed lakes and streams. New research shows that despite the vast evolutionary gulf between humans and the three-spined stickleback fish, the two species have adopted a common genetic strategy to acquire the skin pigmentation that would help each species thrive in their new environments.

In Scandinavia
Ancient Fish Bones reveal Global Warming.
Scientists studying ancient fish bones in Scandinavia have discovered that warm-water species like anchovies and black sea bream that once thrived in Danish waters during a prehistoric warm period are now returning. Some cold-water species, such as cod, were also abundant during this period, having benefited from a lower fishing effort. Click here to read more.
Japanese Goldfish
In Japan
Goldfish Breeders Fish for Riches.
Japan is famous for its beautiful ponds stocked with colorful "Koi" carp - a close relative of the common goldfish. Some breeders are now moving beyond Koi to create even more unusual  types of goldfish including scaleless, pearlescent varieties! First introduced to Japan from China in the year 1502, the "common" goldfish was originally quite rare. As a red mutation of a type of Chinese carp, these early goldfish were extremely expensive and were owned only by those with wealth and nobility. Centuries of breeding have now given us a staggering variety of goldfish, from small orange fishbowl dwellers to beautifully ornate specimens nearly a foot long! Click here to read more.
Trout jumping into pipe.
In Alresford, Hampshire, England,
I'm a Fish ... get me Trout of here.
The intrepid fish leap 3ft from a breeding pond into a pipe bringing fresh water from a nearby stream Great escape ... trout route to freedom. Then they swim the length of the 8in diameter pipe AGAINST the flow to reach freedom 30ft away. It is thought the farmed fish are following a natural urge to head up fast-flowing streams to spawn. Photographer Dennis Bright, 59, captured the amazing sight at Alresford, Hants. He said: ďItís remarkable. But swimming against the current is instinctive for a trout.Ē Click here to read more.
Fish Hatchery
Kelah Fish in Malaysia
Kampung Ulu Sungai, Malaysia,
Hope for Kelah as History is Made.
History was made at the RM3.7 million hatchery, shown above, at Kampung Ulu Sungai here when the first batch of 250 Malayan Masheer hatchlings (Tor tambriodes) or ikan kelah was bred in captivity. At 60 days old, the fry are reported to be in good health and growing under a controlled environment. The result came from the research and work by aquaculturist Ng Chee Kiat, who published a book on the freshwater species titled King of the Rivers three years ago. The 46-year-old said his project was self-funded and took shape last December. To enable captive breeding of the Malayan Masheer, Ng had sourced for a large quantity of brood stock across Peninsular Malaysia. "I built a hatchery complex to house mature fish stock aged one and above because these are fish that have reached maturity and are the right age for their reproduction cycle. I acquired more than 200 specimens." Click here to read more.
Coronado Islands, near San Diego,
Giant Oarfish Caught off the Coast of California!
Here is a picture of Giant Oarfish caught at the US Navy SEAL training center on Coronado Island, just off the coast of San Diego, California. The photo was taken in 1996! Giant Oarfish are one of the strangest looking fish that you will ever see. It is believed that Giant Oarfish which get up to 50 feet long, have been the source of many sea monster reports. Take a look at the photo and I think you will understand why! Click here to read more.
