From the Journal of Fish Biology,
Scientists Push for Electric Eel Genome Research.
Sequencing the complete genome of an Electric Eel, like the one shown above, would be a boon to research on everything from energy production and storage to tissue regeneration, according to some scientists. Six American researchers wrote a review, published this month in the Journal of Fish Biology, calling for dense, seven- to 11-fold shotgun sequencing of the electric eel genome — a move they said would provide information about more than 95 percent of the fish’s genome as well as its genetic scaffold.

From the University of Plymouth in England, UK,
The Foraging Behavior of Hungry Sharks
Sharks and other marine animals find food using a similar search pattern to the way people may shop, according to one of the largest analyses of foraging behaviour attempted so far – and the first such analysis of marine predators. The results of the international study shows that the animals’ behaviour seems to have evolved as a general ‘rule’ to search for sparsely distributed prey in the vast expanse of the ocean. This rule involves a special pattern of random movement known as a Levy Walk, where the predators use a series of small motions interspersed with large jumps to new foraging locations. This increases the chance of finding food, however widely scattered it might be. Click here to read more.
Native American Fish
In America
Native Fish for the Home Aquarium

It's been estimated that as many as 26 million Americans keep aquarium fish. If that figure is accurate, the hobby is the second most popular in the U.S.-right behind photography. And, as a glance at the yellow pages will show you, the term aquarium hobby is virtually interchangeable with tropical fish hobby. Why the almost total emphasis on exotic fish? Well, it's certainly not because of any shortage of native ones. Over 700 species of freshwater fish are found in the U.S., and as you'd imagine-more than a few of them are suitable for the home tank. In fact, as a group, they possess several advantages over tropical fish. The best single source of information and encouragement for anyone interested in keeping native fish in the home aquarium is the North American Native Fishes Association (NANFA). A major tenet of NANFA is that without popular appreciation of our native fish, there is unlikely to be effective conservation of the fish and their habitats. To join NANFA, send $7.50 (U.S., Canada, and Mexico) or $12.50 (other countries) to Robert Syracuse, Treasurer, 101 Country Club Dr., New Orleans, LA 70124. For further information, write R.

Weird New Fish
From National Geographic Magazine,
Weird New Fish Discovered in Antarctica.
This otherworldly creature was among a haul of strange new fish trawled from the bottom of the oceans of Antarctica. The eelpout, Pachycara cousinsi, is one of six previously unknown deep-sea fishes caught at depths of 2.8 miles (4.5 kilometers) during a British research expedition to the remote Crozet Islands in the Indian Ocean between Antarctica and Africa. Team member Nicola King of the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, recently announced the new species. P. cousinsi is known from just a single, 1.35 foot (41 centimeter) long specimen caught during the 2005 to 2006 voyage. King named the fleshy-lipped species in honor of her fiancé, geophysicist Michael Cousins. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” the marine biologist said. Click here to read more.
Hibernating Fish
In Antarctica
Scientists find Hibernating Fish.
Scientists have found an Antarctic fish that hibernates to conserve energy during the long southern winters. The cod Notothenia coriiceps enters a dormant state, similar to hibernation in land animals like hedgehogs, British scientists said on Wednesday. Researchers already knew Antarctic fish had antifreeze chemicals in their blood and their ability to effectively put themselves "on ice" is another remarkable adaptation to an extreme environment. "It appears they utilize the short Antarctic summers to gain sufficient energy from feeding to tide them over in winter. The hibernation-like state they enter in winter is presumably a mechanism for reducing their energy requirements to the bare minimum," said Keiron Fraser of the British Antarctic Survey. Click here to read more.
