Transparent Zebra Danio
At the Children’s Hospital in Boston
Scientists Develop See-through Zebra Danio.
A transparent zebrafish has been engineered to allow scientists to watch how cancers develop and behave inside the body in real time. Each internal organ of the fish and its bones can be seen clearly throughout its life. Observations have shown already that the spread of cancer cells is not random – they home in on a particular area. Click here to read more.

In Kerala, India,
"Fish-Rain" takes Villagers by Surprise.
Residents of Kandanassery village near here were quite surprised when small fish started raining down towards the end of a sudden downpour on Monday night. The phenomenon was first noticed by two persons when the little slimy things started pattering on their body while they were returning home late in the night. As they thought that people would reject this as a mere fantasy or concocted tale unless there was a tangible proof, they picked up some of the bubbling fish and kept them in a water-filled bucket near the village library. Click here to read more.
A Large Mature Male Cichlid
At Sweden's Esrange Space Centre
Scientists to Send Cichlids on a Rocket Ride.
Scientists plan to launch 60 tiny fish on a zero gravity rocket ride from above the Arctic Circle on Monday to try to plumb the secrets of motion sickness. Tomas Hedqvist, project manager for Sweden's Esrange Space Centre, said the baby cichlid fish will head 260 km (160 miles) into the air on an 11-metre (36-foot) two-stage rocket, where they will experience six minutes of weightlessness. Experimenters Reinhard Hilbig and Ralf Anken of the University of Stuttgart-Hohenheim in Germany will train six video cameras on the fish, each of which will be housed in its own aquarium, to see how they react. Click here to read more.

Freshwater Fish Invasions result of Human Activity.
Globally, invasive species represent a major threat to native species. A new paper* shows that, for rivers and lakes, where these invasions occur is predicted by human activity; find an area where economic activity is high and, in nearby lakes and rivers, up to a quarter of species will be migrants to the region. In the first global analysis of invasions in aquatic habitats, Fabien Leprieur, Olivier Beauchard, and colleagues investigate what factors can predict invasion events and find that human activity is to blame. Click here to read more.
Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego, California,
Wind may be Causing Fish Booms and Busts.
The mid-20th century crash of the sardine fishery off California for decades has vexed marine ecologists searching for the root causes of large fluctuations in the sardine population. Before its collapse, the fishery was one of the world's most productive and formed the setting of John Steinbeck's "Cannery Row" in Monterey, Calif. Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have now shed light on the puzzle by proposing a plausible mechanism behind the mystery: wind. Click here to read more.
In Victoria, Australia,
Oldest Australian Crayfish Fossils
Crayfish body fossils and burrows discovered in Victoria, Australia, have provided the first physical evidence that crayfish existed on the continent as far back as the Mesozoic Era, says Emory University paleontologist Anthony Martin, who headed up a study on the finds. "Studying the fossil burrows gives us a glimpse into the ecology of southern Australia about 115 million years ago, when the continent was still attached to Antarctica," says Martin, a senior lecturer in environmental studies at Emory and an honorary research associate at Monash University in Melbourne. Click here to read more.
St. Petersburg, Florida,
A Little Pond with a Really Big Grouper.
A large goliath grouper lives in a stormwater retention pond in mid Pinellas County. It probably came from the bay through an outlet pipe when it was young - perhaps more than a decade ago. A fisherman who recently hooked it thinks it approaches 180 pounds, still modest for a species that can top 800. Now it may be landlocked - too fat to squeeze back through the pipe to a more natural setting. "That's the first time I ever heard about" a goliath living in a retention pond, says Jim Colvocoresses, biologist for Florida's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. "But I could see how it could happen. For the first six years of their lives, they are pretty much an inshore, shallow-water animal." Click here to read more.
In Antarctica
Humans Join the Hunt for "Pink Gold".
They only grow up to 6cm, yet are perhaps the most abundant creatures on the planet in terms of weight. Krill - small shrimp-like crustaceans which with modern technology can be used in fish feed, human dietary supplements, soya sauce flavouring, pharmaceuticals, or even to clean the paintings of Old Masters - are in increasing demand. A "pink gold", which if fed to farmed salmon cut out the need for colourants to make the flesh pink, krill are extremely rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, linked to health benefits for people. Occurring in all oceans but most abundant in the Southern Ocean, they are also the staple diet for seals, penguins and whales and snow petrels. Click here to read more.
